The Russian River was awesome tonight! Jesse and I kayaked from Johnson's Beach in Guerneville to the Monte Rio bridge. Our trip started at 7:00 PM and ended at 8:30 PM. It was light out the whole time, but we paddled almost non-stop to get to Monte Rio before dark.
The River was slow moving and the vibe was pure tranquility! The evening sunlight filters through the trees creating a majestic haze in the atmosphere over the water. Reflections of trees and river bank are cast before you as you coast along. Swallows fill the air looking for a tasty snack and an occasional fish breaks the serene water surface with a slapping splash.
This time of day reminds me of the beauty one experiences when traveling the river during the Fall months.
Drop me an email if you would like to take an evening cruise. If I get enough requests I'll set something up.
