Suwannee River – October 14, 2015

Another absolutely awesome day paddling on the springs section of the Suwannee River between Hal Adams and Ft Mccomb boat ramps with a group from the Florida Trail Association.  We played at Telford Spring, Running Spring, Peacock Slough River Camp, the old Drew Bridge, had lunch at Bathtub Spring, then finished off swimming and wading at Royal Spring. The weather was perfect as was the company.

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.
