On this Thursday paddle we take advantage of unseasonable "warm" temperatures.
We will meet at 10 am for a 10:30 launch.
From here we paddle up inside Sharpshin, Tenfoot, Van Deventer, and Selden Islands. As we are paddling upstream, this part will be a bit of a workout.
Depending on water level we may divert into the side channel at Broad Run
We will take a break at the upstream tip of Selden Island.
We will paddle downstream in the main river channel, outside the boundary islands. The current will definitely assist our return.
Total mileage for this trip will be around 10 miles, but you'll be able to coast the last 3 miles. Time on water 3 to 4 hours. And as always we will poll paddlers on decision points.
Meet at 10 am for a 10:30 launch
