Paddling with the Parkers

At the Dan River Basin Association, we love to hear about your paddling adventures! The following are some photos provided by DRBA members Andy Parker and his family. They recently enjoyed a paddle trip from Marrowbone Creek to Mitchell Road Bridge on the Smith River during the warm weather we had last week.

The 8 inches of snow we had a week ago melted, creating some decent rapids.

Drew & Jack "the canoe dog" tried out a new sit-on-top kayak.

All was cool until.....

Oops -- the dog does not like water.

Jack would not get back in the kayak -- he rock hopped back to the canoe.

Thanks for the story and pictures guys! If you'd like to see YOUR outdoor adventure on the Rivers & Trails Blog, contact Happy Paddling!

Andy Parker is the Man!
He is not from around here but he chooses to live here and fight for the right to paddle in clean streams. Parker in 09
