White water on the Red River

For more years than anyone can remember there’s been an organized Tuesday evening paddle on the Red River near Gresham, Wis., from early spring deep into autumn. I’ve seen anywhere from four to 17 paddlers of all ability levels join in. The great thing about the Red, compared to many other whitewater rivers, is that a dam controls the flow. As a result there’s usually enough water for paddling all season long. With the 2015 season drawing to a close I’m posting a few photos from last night. But who knows? We may get out there again before the ice comes.
