April 8, 2017 Boardman, Brown Bridge to Beitner

 | Published on 4/8/2017

What a great paddle on the Boardman River from Brown Bridge Landing to Beitner, thanks to Bob Fitch for organizing! Only one overhanging tree & easy to clear with Glenn's help stablizing my canoe from the bank. 65F when we finished, so lucky to enjoy a 2nd spring weekend of paddling!
