Sunrise Paddling on the North Canadian River

This weekend we finished cleaning up our new North Canadian River lot enough to park our RV there. Here, you see me taking my reward for months of struggle and expense...sunrise paddling. Most outfitters won't put you on the river in time to catch the morning mist rising up into the orange light of daybreak. This is why we bought our kayaks. More pictures and trips at:
