Trip Reports

September 23 South Branch of the AuSable

 | Published on 9/23/2017
A VERY prompt group - we left the put-in to run the shuttle 20 minutes before the scheduled time!
It was like the old Beach Boys song: "Two girls for every boy...."
Who: Dorelle, Dee, Lois, John, Gail, Harold, Pam, Marlene, Mike T
Easy paddling, two swim breaks, enough shade to make it pleasant, a visit to the chapel, just a few other groups of paddlers (who were very polite), a couple of anglers (likewise), gorgeous colors, great trip!
