canoe3-sm.jpgThe Brazos River is one of our favorite and easiest trips, but spring can be tricky, especially with all the rain typical of this season. The weekend turned out to be “almost” perfect. The weather, the river and the group were good.

Whitney, Nicole, Perry, Loren, Jennifer and Julia with OA’s Danni and Ben headed early Saturday for the put-in near Possum Kingdom Dam. The first day proved a little difficult to find a good camp spot as the beautiful weather brought scores of people to the river for the same reason as us. After about 13 miles, the group eventually found a suitable site to spend the evening and night. After a long day on the river, it wasn’t long before everyone headed for the sleeping bags.

The next day was leisure, except for Ben who was saddled with the solo canoe. Paddling the remaining 7 miles proved not so difficult, and the group was heading for home sooner than expected.
