As always we try to get out on the Grand any chance we get. With a nice sunny forecast and some friends and family we made a great day of the West Montrose to Scheider Park.
The Grand as always is a great paddle. Lots to see, a plethora of wildlife ( great for birding) the water levels are slightly low as to be expected. The gang only got hung up a few times as we traveled down.
With water levels low it meant our new Swift Kevlar was staying home. We’ve been in search of a river canoe for the last few months but I’ve yet to find something I like. That meant one of our older Scott boats would be making the trip with us (Id forgotten how heavy they were)
All in all it was a great day spent on a local waterway. Many people take their local spots for granted . Yes this may not have the scenery the Temagami has but it’s a nice escape for a few hours and a great way to spend time with family and friends.
