Lovely relaxed paddle led by Sara with Kim Gyr, Bob Fitch, and me (Jocelyn).
Short of perfection only in that the river needs a bit of a clean-up.  I will schedule
one for Tuesday, Sept 2. Come help.

Cardinal flowers are out, as is Grass of Parnassus (or bog star)
And here is the eagle perched way up in a tree on the right just after you enter the lake
