June 15, 13th Annual N Branch AuSable River "Non" Cleanup Report

13th Annual N Branch AuSable River "Non" Cleanup Report

In 1980, this was the first river I ever paddled.  We stole a canoe and paddled it fast
thinking that if we went fast, we could steer more easily.  That did not go well.

Today we did it right with a nice group of friends and I had a great time.

The photos tell the story better than I can.

All photos can be seen at this link.
