June 19 Manistee River
For 7 paddlers the challenge of the day was entering & exiting kayaks from narrow river side platforms. Due to higher water levels most river edges were 2 1/2 to 3 feet at minimum deep making stepping into your kayak a non-choice.
The lunch stop at 3 Mile Bend Access site appeared within an hour. From there it was about a 1 1/2 hrs. paddle to the takeout. The last 45 minutes we encountered intermittent rain, but it did not dampen our spirits. John Willis
