Open Water on Chalk River

(photo by Bob: 2008-04-07 - explore

Open Water   The Chalk River is now open between Hwy. 17 and Corry Lake, and I believe has been since Saturday. (This is about the same timing as last year.) I considered going for a solo paddle, but felt that with the snow banks, I wouldn't be able to safely launch unassisted. Or rather, I could probably launch but I wouldn't be able to get back on shore at the end of the paddle!
