About half a mile upstream, we encountered a road block and had to turn around to head back the way we came. We hadn't been out on the water for very long, so we decided to go where the current took us for a while. After a bit, we realized it was going to be quite the struggle to make our way back up through the strong currents, so we kept paddling, hoping the river would curve around take us to another place near where we had parked.
Hours later (Just kidding. Only an hour...) we had still not found a place to exit the water. This should serve as a reminder to always bring water with you since you never know where an adventure may lead. Also, I hear sweating to death in the hot southern sun is the worst. So kids, don't forget. Hydration is key.
Don't worry. We did eventually find a place to get out, and it was only half a mile from the car! Go team! It was a fun day adventuring, slightly fearing we were lost forever, breathing in the fresh, humid air, and working on my Chaco tan.
HOW DO YOU ADVENTURE?
