Trip Reports

Nov 2 - Boardman, Forks to Brown Bridge Landing

 | Published on 11/2/2015

Tamaracks turn after the other trees, so very stunning among the deep green cedars. What a wonder-ful paddle, great friends, warm weather, sunshine & golden tamaracks on every bend on my favorite section of the Boardman, between The Forks SF Campground & Brown Bridge Landing. Thanks Rebecca Beach & Linnaea Melcarek for helping with the shuttle, and Bert Courson & Jan Ealy for schlepping boats! We also admired the new trees planted at Brown Bridge recently by Grand Traverse Conservation District friends, including Becky & Linda Garvin Pelkey. Photos & trip report by Sara Cockrell
