Congaree Blue Trail

Labor Day weekend 2011… I went on a 54 mile trip down the Catawba. It is called the Congaree down in these parts, because it runs past the Congaree National Forest.

Starting out at Columbia South Carolina


A rock garden for the first couple of miles.


The bridge at Columbia SC


Ray with Jackson going along for the ride.Going through and old lock system.


Rest of the group coming through the lock.


Ron with Sammy along for the ride.


Wild turkeys. Hard to tell in this picture.


After kayaking for 20 miles this was one of the best beers I have ever had.


Just me


Old barge from the 1800's. We saw several of these.


Just a pretty day


Sue, Marti and Ray (enjoying a cold one).


Jackson was whipped!


Last morning... about 4 miles of paddling.


That's all folks!
