Kayaking the Arkansas River, SE of Little Rock, Arkansas June 2012
I pulled off where the slough meets the main river and allowed the barge to go past. It was a really nice spot and I was able to walk into the water for a spell. I found a hatched turtle nest right on the point (making sure to avoid it as not to disturb it). When I got back on the main channel, the wind really started to whip up as well as the continuing barge wake. It was an outstanding trip! There is a submurged old wing dike where the river hits the Corps area. I paddled over it (I could not tell where the channel was) which is a risky endevour in a sea kayak. The one "sensation" I do not like at all is to have some object lift up the kayak from the bottom. My next trip I will be sure to stay on the channel.
