Duck River Kayak - Tony
Today was yet another beautiful day for a kayak float! I joined the Highland Rim chapter of the Tennessee Trails Association and THIRTY others for this wonderful cruise down the Duck River.
We put in a Normandy Dam in Normandy, Tennessee, floated to Cortner Mill where we had to portage due to the dam. We ate lunch here and socialized, re-boarded our boats and floated down to Dement Bridge where we lost a couple of people who needed to get home.
From Dement we coasted down to Three Forks Bridge where our trip ended. It was a total of (plus or minus) 8 miles and the weather cooperated nicely. It was hot, but not as hot as the mid 90's that the guru's were predicting.
