Procession to the launch site

What a perfect July day! Winding river, white clouds, blue sky, slight breeze.

Great crowd for dedication ceremony at Gilbertson Park to celebrate the Turkey River Water Trail.

Plenty of junk in the river on the downstream float – but AWARE volunteers took up the challenge.

John “Chainsaw” Larison dealt harshly with a nasty sweeper that grabbed a couple of canoes. Thanks, John!

Shuttle from the Frieden’s Park day’s end access took paddlers to Elkader park – and showers!

A good place to dry out clothes and camping gear, too.

Many folks capped off the evening at the Elkader Opera House for a lively Big Blue Sky concert to benefit the newly formed Clayton County Conservation Awareness Network.

On to historic Motor Mill on Thursday!
