A more beautiful day than Sunday, Nov. 20, to go on the river would be hard to imagine. A totally cloudless sky, cool fall weather with colorful autumn foliage and crystal clear water were made to order for a joint OSFR/Sierra Club paddle of roughly 14 miles.
This sad tire was quickly replaced Soaring vulture in a cloudless sky
Eight like-minded people made the journey in under five hours, the only mishap being a flat tire on the boat trailer, soon fixed by johnny-on-the spot Doug Jipson. Few boats were seen, but two SCUBA divers were passed below Wilson Springs.
OSFR and Sierra Club members Diane and Don came from as far away as Deland.
