    Hello! This will be my first moonlight canoe trip. Does anyone know approximately what time the trip ends?

      Jessica, It's a great route--no rapids :) -- lots of visual treats and when not paddling with a group rich with riverside wildlife. FYI:You won't need it to see your way but if you have a headlamp or small flashlight it's good to bring along.

    Hi all, looking forward to tonight. Great weather last night hoping for more of the same. I live in the area and will be putting in at Norton Creek. I'll be in a yellow kayak.

    Barring a last minute crises of juggling multi-tasks or a powerful whack from Mother Nature I look forward to this return to the water under the moon!

    Hi all. Just letting you know that I will not be paddling with you on this paddle. I will be Paddling to the Symphony. I'm leaving my RSVP yes so that if you have any questions I will get them and answer them.
