Photographer's Note

As a follow-up to my last Canoe run of 2003, I was determined to get in my first paddle of 2004 before winter returns with a vengeance tonight with forecasted -15 temperatures.
So this morning I broke through some thin ice and paddled up this local creek but the main river was already clogging up with ice chunks.

Today's paddle was history-making for our climate area...never before have our rivers been open on the first of the new year.

This will likely be the last of the open water after tonight's freeze-up....the next canoe outing will come with the April break-up of the frozen rivers.

I was debating whether to crop out the front of the canoe....what do you think ?
