Two Weeks away from the Vermillion
Paul and I went to the Verm for the first time in two weeks. I was away due to a pinched nerve in my neck and left shoulder. Not due to paddling. I'm happy to say it's almost healed and paddling yesterday didn't bother me in the least. Alot has changed on the Verm in two weeks. The water has gotten warmer and slower. The features are taking on that sluggish, weird, spring time flow like it did for a few brief weeks last year. Hopefully it won't last long. Donut wasn't very retentive at all yesterday. I actually miss my winter time paddling. A winter 42cfs beats this 77cfs anytime for fun. But true to the Vermillion the scenery was beautiful. Last week I took some photos of these white bleeding hearts. The RailRoad Hole beaver had a few choice words for me when I paddled by.
