My Report:

A heck of a paddle and a great day for gator viewing. This place is truly amazing.

Water level is perfect. The water is not as clear as it usually is because the recent rains but it still OK. It just look a watery sweet, or unsweet, tea.

No heavy traffic on the river. Even the kayak traffic was light. Saw no more than three kayaks, one canoe, and a couple of motor boats in five hours in the water.

Posted a detailed report and more pics here: Views From Our Kayak - Lower Wekiva River.

Happy 4th of July Green Wave.
