PROVO RIVER: LOWER TOWN SECTION
DATE: Monday, June 22, 2009
PADDLERS: Kim, Amy, Virg, Mark & Son
PUT-IN: Fire Station, Columbia Ln
TAKE-OUT: Utah Lake State Park
TIME: 2 hr (approx)
AMY'S NOTES: This section of the Provo really should be called the bushwack-swift-river-jungle-slalom run. This was the christening run for my new inflatable kayak. Unsure of how wet I would be getting, I opted not to take the camera so there are no pix of the river. But the first section was defined by a swift current moving through a winding landscape with several low bridges and branches for ducking, followed by a slow wide almost swampy section reminiscent of deep south places I've only seen in the movies.
