Paddlers Brave Hurricane to Ride the Smith!

Actually, it wasn't that bad at all! In true DRBA tradition, we don't make the decision to cancel river trips until we're at the boat launch. That policy worked to our advantage on Saturday since what we thought might turn out to be a yucky rainy day actually ended up as a wonderful sunny day to paddle the Smith River.

Thirteen boaters braved the ominous forecast to come out and see if the trip would happen. Those boaters were treated to a great paddle trip from Marrowbone Creek to Mitchell's Bridge with plenty of water flow. Following the paddle, the group ate picnic lunches at the Gravely Nature Preserve and were given guided tours of the trails by DRBA trip coordinator Paul Johnson.

Join us on Saturday, October 4th as we paddle the Dan River!
