For a while now I've heard that the Elkhorn Creek north of Frankfort offers some good Class I paddling. Today, Noelle and I finally made it up there. We rented our canoe from Canoe Kentucky and paddled a twelve mile section of the creek.
It was great to see lots of wildlife like turtles, great blue herons, and water snakes. Perhaps the best part of the trip was the lack of yahoos on the creek. Having off on weekdays definitely has its advantages! The weather was also perfect. On the drive there we were a little nervous because it was so cool, but by the time we got on the river temperatures were in the lower 70s with blue skies and light breezes. A relaxing day on the water!
