September 22 Manistee Paddle

 | Published on 9/22/2015

It was a great late summer day on the Manistee (fall officially starts tomorrow).  We had lots of sun and the temperature was in the mid-70s at lunch time.  The river was fast and clear.  Some trees have started to hint at color change.


Today’s group consisted of Angie & John, John & Winston, Bob B, Linnaea M, Linda W, Kurt R, Sara, Barb & Mike – 2 solo canoes (Winston was in one, but did not paddle) and 8 kayaks.  We only saw one other kayak on the river.  Even though it was a beautiful day, only Winston and Barb took to the water.


This stretch of river is a club favorite and it did not disappoint today.
