Jack's Fork Canoe Trip Aug 13-14, 2009

I took Danielle and Lilly on an overnight canoe trip on the Jack's Fork here in S. MO. We put in at Alley Spring, and took out the next day at Two Rivers. It is a beautiful river, with clear, cold spring-fed waters flowing over a gravel bottom and along picturesque limestone bluffs deep in an Ozark valley. It was our last big outing of the summer, before they start school next week.
