Scenic Indeed

This weekend we had the opportunity to paddle the Jacks Fork river which makes up part of the Ozark Scenic Waterway.  Located in southeastern Missouri, the Ozark Scenic Waterway is home to both the Jacks Fork and Current Rivers which converge just south and east of the town of Eminence.  Our original plan was to float the Current but the Park Service temporarily shut down the Harper's Ferry due to shifting sediment on the bottom of the river which made the water too shallow for crossing.  So after a sizable detour and a couple of hours we decided to float the Jacks Fork for the sake of time and convenience.  In no way were we disappointed with our decision to float the Jacks Fork.  The river was nothing short of amazing with crystal clear waters, lush green vegetation covering the banks, and beautiful overhanging rock cliffs perched along the shores.  After getting a taste of this area we hope to come back and do a multi-day paddling excursion, camping along the way.  The following pics are from our trip on the Jacks Fork, enjoy!
