Spring on the Salt Fork

A short kayak trip on the Salt Fork this afternoon revealed the beauty of the river habitat. The redbuds were in full bloom as were the serviceberries. The emerging leaves of the Sycamore and their white trunks were magnificent as viewed against the bright blue background of the midwest sky. And meanwhile along the shore, blue bells, violets, and spring beauties were blooming everywhere. The scent of the blooming blue phlox was in the air. Needless to say I was so busy taking in the beauty of the vegetation, that I only managed to view a few Canadian geese, a turtle sliding off a log and a heron flying overhead.

  1. I would like to look into arranging an canoe/kayak outing for the Wesley church.

    I would appreciate somebody contacting me about how to go about it.
