Suwannee River – June 24, 2015

Another wonderful day in paradise paddling the Suwannee River.   We did the 11+ miles between Hal Adams Ramp and Ft McComb ramp north of Branford which 3 of our 5 paddlers had never paddled before.  We selected this section because there are a number of springs along the route for cooling off.  The sturgeon were really jumping, but I never seem to have my camera pointed in the right direction to get a photo – they kind of erupt from the water without warning.  Other than the sturgeon and a sleepy Brown Water Snake we didn’t see a lot of wildlife, so today you get mostly springs pictures.
