Fourche La Fave River, Arkansas, March 9th 2011: Quick evening paddle on the Forche in Arkansas
This was a nice, quick paddle. The temps got a bit low, but that was alright due to the fact that at this point we were out of the wind. Got a chance to paddle with a Great Blue Heron in front of the kayak the whole trip. I also saw one of the healthiest Red Foxes I have ever seen. Seemed real unfortunate that so many have used this river as a trash can. Could really use a stream team to clean it up. Seemed to have pipes dumping right into the river as well. Could be a real scenic river on the east end if it was just cleaned up a bit....a real shame. Seems like a river with some real potential.
