As you might know, we pretty much had zero rain last year and the river was pretty still. I mean, we could put a tube in and it wouldn't float anywhere. Well, so far 2012 has brought us enough rain to fill up the river for us enough to take a little canoe trip.
We put on our river gear and drove to the rental business down the road. They hooked us up with a pretty red canoe, put us in the water, and off we went on a little 4 mile adventure down the beautiful Guadalupe.
The river. Isn't God's beauty and design amazing?
And the journey begins
I look like I know what I'm doing, but I have no clue.
Thanks to YouTube I now know how to canoe/kayak correctly
I could look at this ALL day. I can't wait until it's warm enough to swim and tube.
About half way through our float we stopped to take pics. I told Travis our trip would be even more amazing if we saw deer swim across the river.
If you look closely, you'll see a small waterfall in the back. I was scared of it. First time canoer-what can I say?
Do you see what I see? Deer! 6 beautiful Axis deer.
Swimming across the river while we have the camera out.
Coincidence? I don't think so...
What a beautiful day for a Sunday afternoon date.
