Kayaking the Huron River Water Trail

Ger and I spent the morning paddling the Huron River water trail, at least the northern part of it from just below Proud Lake to just before Kent Lake.

It’s one of our favorite stretches to paddle; it’s nearby, easy to get into and out of, it’s a relatively easy paddle with only one portage that is at a good break point, and it takes only about 2-3 hours even on a slow day.

During today’s trip, we saw several blue herons, a few turtles, one giant reddish-brown bird that looked and sounded a lot like a demon heron, and several swan and goose families. Plus a ton of drunk river partiers.

In all…a relaxing trip, but I’m exhausted and ready for a lengthy nap.
