Canoe Trip!

What do you get when you combine 8 Cub Scouts, 3 leaders, 4 canoes and 1 local creek running through the neighborhood? Why the recipe for an outdoor adventure just a hop skip and jump from your door!

They launched their canoes just inside the perimeter highway about a mile east of this little creek's source. It was quite the adventure getting started where the creek barely seemed wide enough to hold a canoe! Then they followed it as it slowly wound through our neighborhood on it's way to empty into the nearby river. In their 5 km of travels they had to go under 5 different bridges - and two of those were pretty tight squeezes!

I'm trying to decide who had more fun... them in the canoes, or me chasing them from bridge to bridge snapping pictures of the journey!
