Chassahowitzka River – July 05, 2015

Wonderful day paddling with friends at Chassahowitzka (Chaz-WITS-ka) near Homosassa, FL.  A very hot day so we limited ourselves to visiting the swimming springs – “Seven Sisters” and “The Crack”.

We put in at Chassahowitzka Campground (where you can also rent canoes and kayaks) then paddled upstream to Seven Sisters. When it started getting crowded there we paddled downstream to Baird Creek and paddled up to “The Crack”.  When it started getting really crowded there we paddled back to the Campground boat ramp and went out to a late lunch before heading home.
