On the river…

We’ve had two glorious days of “Indian Summer” here in Pittsburgh and I decided to make the most of them by taking the kayak out on the river. Yesterday, I put in near my house and decided to paddle for five bridges on the Monongahela which turned out to be about 4 miles one way. Today, I put in near to where I left off yesterday (the Southside Riverfront Park) and paddled to the three rivers point and a little ways up the Allegheny before having lunch and turning back. The water temperature is around 50 degrees, which made for an eye opener when I rolled, but the warm sunshine soon dried me off.
