Driving up to the St. Louis I passed thru two thunderstorms and was welcomed with pouring down rain at the Outpost. My first thoughts were that maybe we could play the first wave but I wasn't going to paddle the river and reservoir with lightning. As it turned out the downpour was brief and the sun came out. 25 kayakers and 1 open boater put on at the rafting company. Superior Rafting added one more kayaker on the river and a raft full of people. The level was great! We had kayakers from three different states represented! Some of our Canoe U students joined us...both looked at the hole on Electric Ledge...I told them not too but ya know...I think everyone on their first time down Electric Ledge has to do that. I know I did! Both of them did well going thru the hole though. Fall days with some sun and water are pretty rare. What an amazing day!
