I talked to 3 places and got two different answers and a non-committal answer.

Turkey Run Park Rangers - quote "the water is very, very, very low." No, we don't monitor the water level.

Sugar Valley Outfitters - we are still canoeing, but yes the water level is very low right now, but it's normal for this time of year.

Clements Outfitters - has closed 4 of their 5 trips including the one that goes through Turkey Run.

I guess I got my answer - too low to canoe without lots of walking in shallow water.

See y'all on Friday!!

Sounds like the black river at the end of summer. More dragging than paddling = not much fun.

Putting the final items on the grocery list. Last major chore.

If you see a 29 ft. 1974 Airstream towed by a gray Toyota Tundra heading east towards St. Louis (St. Charles/St. Peters), that could be maccamper on his way to a BBQ competition.

Travel safe and enjoy the weekend everyone. Great campfire weather!

A gallery of 45 photos including all those seen above are at the following link: gallery.mac.com/skmentz#100762

There's a button toward the top of the page that allows you to upload your own photos to the gallery to share. There's also a button to download all the photos in the gallery in one zip file or download each photo individually.

Thanks everyone for a great weekend.
