Our Maiden Canoe Voyage - Big Fork River

Sunday was too gorgeous to be watching football so we decided to go canoeing.  We recently bought two canoes from Uncle Kevin and for our maiden voyage we decided to put in at his house and paddle to Grandma Dianna's.  Well, that was a little ambitious for our first trip.  I mapped it afterwards and it was over 10 miles!  It took us about 4 1/2 hours but it was (mostly) a lot of fun.  We saw tons of ducks, a pair of swans, a couple small flocks of geese, an eagle and even a snake swimming among the long river weeds.

I think our next trip will be a little shorter and maybe we'll be daring enough to bring Alarik along too.  He spent the afternoon with the other Storlies while we paddled.
