Trip Reports

Oct 3 - Boardman, Forks to Brown Bridge Landing

 | Published on 10/3/2017

A perfect paddle on the Boardman this morning from The Forks State Forest Campground to Brown Bridge Landing, following a blue heron down to the ex-pond, where the leaves are starting to turn. Mike Rodenberg helped with the shuttle, and Ann R & John W met me beforehand. We welcomed a new member, Chase, to the TAPC, and enjoyed Piper's retrieval of his new red ball from the river while stopped at Scheck's for lunch. Our group included Barb, Bob F &  Tracie, too.
