Emily Nelson and a friend recently took a kayak trip on the Gualala River. She brought her camera along so we can share in her experience.
Reflections in the river from Emily's kayak.
Below is a common Merganser family, with Mom bringing up the rear. Emily counted 13 babies.
And below is a Seep-spring Monkey Flower. It was seen growing along the bank of the Gualala River.
Don't have your own kayak, canoe or paddleboard? Adventure Rents of Gualala does all the work so you just have fun. They even can accommodate pets. Here's their website where you can also find many wonderful photos of the river: http://www.adventurerents.com/
Thanks to Emily for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
