GREAT canoe trip today with my son Andrew. We've been doing some dad/son stuff in the last couples years (Pictured Rocks area mainly) and decided to branch out a bit with a local canoe trip down the Sturgeon from Trowbridge Road to North White Road near Indian River. Big Bear Adventures in Indian River set us up with a canoe a quick shuttle upstream with our boat.
Hit the river at Trowbridge Road just south of where the river goes under I-75 at 11:30am, 65 degrees and sunny. Pretty easy trip down to Wolverine where the west branch merges in with the main branch and we stopped for lunch quick. It was about an hour to here.
From here down it was fast and furious with some nice rapids I'd not been on before. Pretty fun. We'd been on the river about 4 hours 15 minutes when we FLIPPED about 200 yards from the van!!!! DANG!! That water is COLD. Oh well, when a trip goes perfectly smooth there's not much to remember. We'll remember this one. Great day.
