Find tranquility as you glide along the radiant fall colors of this forested creek where bald eagles fly above, turtles bask on logs, and kingfishers chatter along its banks. We will make frequent stops to point out various wildlife and interesting features of the landscape so please expect a leisurely pace so that we may explore and no one misses out on an exciting wildlife sighting.
