We started the day with rain as we made our way to the launch site.  We arrived at hwy 419 and unloaded our kayaks  & were glad we had wheels to place under our boats for the long hike down to the river.  Next the shuttle took place.  A huge thanks to Phyllis's friend who came to help us with our shuttle.  As we made our way down the river the sun came out and heated the day.  This was another beautiful paddle.  I just can't pick a favorite river.  This was an easy paddle because the current took us along with ease.  We had a few obstacles which made some extra fun for us.  We arrived at the Snowhill Road take out point where our trip ended.  We went to eat at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp Bar & Grill.  I'm glad I didn't miss this beautiful river.
