Georgia Wilderness Society
18 GWS members made the trip down the Suwannee River over Memorial Day weekend, 2006. The weather was warm and the river was a bit low, but that just made for more sandbars to enjoy!
The low water did mean a few trees to duck under, and a few times we did actually have to get out of the boats...but not that many.

Chris and Ward raise a glass (right) as Charlie and Dave relax (below).

The firering was a big one (left) because it was so warm in the late afternoon. But the morning did bring a nice fog on the river (right).

Right, Shirley keeps her distance from the evening's campfire.
Above....a typical view along the Suwannee with its blackwater acting like a mirror for the tupelo tree in the distance.
Right....Bud, Chris, and the other Chris get some welcome relief from the heat by swimming.
Below....the water was also a bit of relief from the yellow flies that were very annoying from time to time.....(dawn to dusk).
Despite the bugs and heat, this was a great way to spend the three day weekend.
