We’ll meet at 10AM (70 and partly cloudy) at the Wildlife Ramp at the end Midyette Street and then we’ll drive to Pierce Creek (3.5 miles to launch). An easy paddle up into the smaller streams maybe 2 hours long. Maybe the stream where we saw the bear last year. We didn’t make it last week and 14 of us went up Kershaw Creek instead. If you need to borrow a kayak let me know.
