2021 Paddle Day
June 12th 2021 turned out to be a great day for 12 lucky Vernon Marsh
paddlers! We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. We met at
Fox River Park in Waukesha and after a short orientation and safety
review we slid our kayaks into the river. Water levels turned out to be
perfect. With a decent current and a nice breeze we were on our way!
The trip was a little longer than past trips. We clocked in at about 4
1/2 hours on the water, resulting in a few sore muscles on Sunday
morning I'm sure! We paddled a total of 11.5 miles, a record for many
of us in a single day's paddle! (see map)
the trip we spotted many birds, blue heron, turtles, fish and even a
bald eagle (see pic of nest). As the last of our paddlers left the
river at HWY ES in Waterford, everyone helped load kayaks on our Shuttle
bus' trailer. Then it was back to our put-in spot at Fox River Park
and good-byes until next time!
A great day, a great river, our beautiful Vernon Marsh, and a great group!! Thanks to everyone!
