AWARE – Day 3 – Turkey River Access to Elgin

Filed under: Uncategorized — lstone @ 10:51 pm

Another delightful day on the river. The scattered showers might have dampened gardeners – but no problem for intrepid canoeists!

Logistics of the midday stop at historic Clermont to unload junk and portage around the dam went as well as could be expected.

Rumor had it that Governor Larrabee even greeted the paddlers.

Gilbertson Park showers and great campsites helped ease tired muscles – as did an evening marshmallow roast.

Wednesday takes us toward Elkader, with pull-out at Frieden Park, and shuttle to Elkader City Park.

AND a Big Blue Sky concert at the Elkader Opera House.

7:30 p.m. Don’t miss it!
