Trip Reports

May 23 Jordan River

 | Published on 5/23/2016

Dear Members,

So many of you missed a wonderful day on the Jordan!  The weather was perfect.  The river gave us just enough sharp turns and hidden logs to make it challenging as as we paddled undisturbed by any other paddlers.  We had the river to ourselves except for one shy muskrat and hundreds of small fry hurling their bodies into the air to snare unsuspecting insects.  Flowers and fruit blossoms lined our way as we traveled down that perfect river.  Hope you take advantage of your next opportunity to paddle the Jordan.  It was an exceptional day on a fabulous river. 


Angie's excellent skills led us all safely down the river. Thanks to Lois and John for offering this trip.


Sincerely,  Dawn Freels
