    Paint Rock River trip

    Paddled one of those places I have crossed and wanted to paddle for many many years today. Also set up a photo album tonight of the trip. BTW not totally crazy about this "skin" for the photo album. But it will do till I can learn how to write one.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Very cool, Jeff. Looks like a nice trip. You got some sweet shots in that bunch, too.

    And for what it's worth, I kinda liked the skin on the page.

    Overall I like it to, just a couple of thing I think would improve it.

    At first the idea of rocks and your beautiful kayak gave me pause. But, that river looks fairly benign. Great trip, glad you are enjoying the fruits of your labor.

    LOL, I need to post a photo of the bottom of the boat. She no longer looks "NEW".

    But as Nick would say "A boat is not finished till it has it's first scratch"

    We did that river in boy scouts

    My son being in boy scouts. Looks like the same conditions. No flow, lots of paddeling.

    Want flow?
    Come to the Ozarks this year. The Buffalo River, the first "National" river, is usually bottom dragging this time of the year. But, this year it is way up and flowing strong. One of the most beautiful float trips anywhere. Also, the White River is going strong. Both provide great fishing also. Smallmouth on the Buffalo, trout on White.

    The Paint Rock is dependent on rain and the river levels for it current. We saw it reverse a couple of times and flow upstream (slowly). A little rain and it raises quickly. It drains a HUGE area. Spring time it's know for the flooding and big time current.
