We canoed down a nearby river on Saturday morning. It’s a beautiful stretch – nothing but water, lush green trees, and wildlife for hours on end. Thanks to a wide flood plain and some land preservation we didn’t spot a building, farm, or road for miles.
I’m glad alligators are very rare this far upstream. Call me a sissy, but I’d rather not tempt fate by mixing a fragile boat, shallow water, a narrow river, tasty humans, and long toothy jaws.
Pictures taken by both of us with Carl’s little point and shoot – no risking fancy cameras on the river!
