u.s.n.w.c. fireworks!

the united states national whitewater center is located just across the river, which is but a short paddle away. ..beware, however, that when you paddle over to watch the fireworks, you'll need a flashlight to find your way back to the kayak dock.

last night (luckily) there was a bright half-moon, or it would have been impossible.

-babbling brooks
-snakes (allegedly, but we didn't see any)
