got an invite from mike and fletch to kayak the salt river
they borrowed a kayak from their neighbor for me
put in around 9:00 at saguaro lake ranch
thanks to @jkgs4 for the info on that
a couple bucks more, but a really scenic mile next to some cliffs before getting to the zoo at water users area
we got going before most of the memorial day weekend tubing crowd
still a LOT of people near water users and blue point
a few stretches without anyone else in sight
several fun ripples, just enough to entertain between the relaxing floats
flow was 1070 cfs today
sheriff's department out patrolling with the four man airboat and a helicopter
quieter after the tubing take out at coon bluff
took two breaks to cool off
i've only kayaked on lakes before this, and enjoyed the river experience
red wing blackbirds, egrets and herons, a few fish
even saw four of the feral horses
got to granite reef pull out and did the shuttle thing
the entire salt river recreation area was closed off sometime mid day, presumably due to overcrowding
might have been better to start earlier
kayaking is the way to go
a fun day on the river :)
