With a overcast start I headed up to the Kettle River to meet up with Kent, Sally, and Lew. We met up with Tom, Brian and Dave at the put in for a very nice group of paddlers. The sun made a valiant effort to come out but not quite. The word to describe my day on the river was mellow. I was in a mood to just run the river and ride the wave trains. Look at the leaves and just enjoy the good company. Everyone had a great day paddling. Happy Birthday to Kent!
