1034Fall Color Paddle October 5, 1:00 Holly to Tenton
- Sep 23, 2013Fall Color Paddle
Whether or not you help clean the river on Sunday, everyone is welcome
and encouraged to participate in the Fall Color Paddle, which starts at
1:00 on Saturday October 5, 2013. Registration begins at 12:00. We
plan to have a tow boat on the Fenton Mill Pond, in case there is a
strong wind and you need a tow across to Strom Park.
The Shiawassee is particularly beautiful this time of year. Migrating
birds are starting to congregate for the trip south. Deer are active in
mating season. The leaves are turning color. There has been plenty of
rain, so the river is easy to paddle. This stretch has fewer visible
houses per mile than many up north rivers up north, so it has a quiet
and relaxing quality that normally you pay to vacation in. Come join us
for a wonderful time.
