Augusta Canal
August 5, 2000

Jen and I made some new friends with the Palmetto Paddlers by touring the Augusta Canal in Augusta, Georgia. The canal is over 150 years old, built to provide power, prevent flooding, and provide transportation around the rapids in the Savannah River.

Steve Soltys did a fine job of researching the area, telling us the history, pointing out the highlights and dangerous areas. Wildlife along the way included turtles, several great blue herons, an osprey, a green heron, and a particularly bold otter. There were ten people among seven boats...five kayaks and two canoes.

This was my first attempt at photography from my kayak, and as such, I brought along my inexpensive, low-quality digital camera. If you want to see an enlargement, I recommend the "Medium" link as the "Large" link doesn't provide much more detail.
