Float Report Lumber River 10/4/2001
- Today two LRCC members Paddled the Lumber from
Three Br. Rd. to Chicken Rd.(short float selected in
order to get Char to come) Water level of 7.05 ft. at
Rt. 71 gave us plenty of water for a no portage trip.
We did have to move a large piece of driftwood in
order to get around a new treefall.But we did not have
to get out. We also had a low under which was no
problem.The colors of the season , orange, yellow, and red
made for a pleasent and scenic trip as did the
wildlife seen. Three ducks paddled in front of us for a
time as if showing us the way. Three times we saw a
large heron and another large unidentified bird,
probably an ahinga sp?. I was really glad to get back on
the river having missed the last few trips for a
wedding, a funeral, and a horse show judging job.<br>This
was such a beautiful weekend I was supprised that no
other members showed up for this scheduled float.
Paddlers were Charlotte and Marshall Thompson.
