Grasse River Paddle

A gorgeous afternoon for a kayak on the Grasse, thanks to SLU’s canoe shack! The first signs of fall are starting to show in the yellowing of leaves. Spotted a few turtles sunning themselves, lots of frogs hanging out on the algae, a few remaining flowers. Followed two belted kingfishers up the river for a while, but they just wouldn’t pose for a good photo. A beautiful day!

What a beautiful day on the river -- and look at those turtles! A must-do activity before the weather gets too cold.

How cool- following some Belted Kingfishers sounds like a great way to spend the day!
