Trip Reports

July 25 Crystal River

Published on 7/25/2016
Last minute trip on a river seldom paddled by the club reunited three friends for good clean fun.
Linda P, Jackie A & Tracie L tackled a clean up on the Crystal River in Glen Arbor Mi. We were assisted by the good folks at Crystal River Outfitters. They allowed us to park in their lot and take out at their landing site. Big kudos, especially to Woody, who helped load Linda's kayak on her car at the end when we were all tired! We enjoyed a beautiful paddle, finding 3.5 bags of trash, shooting the tubes & very clear warm water. Then out to lunch at Boondocks afterwards, where Linda's daughter Jess joined us. Our early morning decision to make it a clean up was worthwhile.
Good thinking Jackie!
