Russian River Canoe Trip, Healdsburg, CA

Sunnyvale, CA - For this post we've got a few photos from our annual Russian River Canoe Trip. Unfortunately, I never manage to take all that many photos of this trip as I am usually too busy running around trying organize things. So, I have to kind of rely on others for documentation. This year I've added a few pics from the river, sent to me by Mike H. Thanks Mike!  If anyone else has photos they would like to share, please drop me an email.

So, we've been doing this Russian River Canoe Trip for more years than we care to count (lets say 17ish).  It just seems to be a great excuse to get a whole bunch of friends together and to check to see how our tolerance for alcohol is doing.  This year we had 39 people out on the river on Saturday and 13 on Sunday.  As our alcohol tolerance drops with age, so do the number of folks canoeing on Sunday.  46 showed up to the BBQ on Saturday night.  I hope you all can make it out next Summer.  Mark your Calendars for the first weekend in June (although we had to move it to the second week this year as it was way too close to the Lake House Trip).

If you are interested in planning your own trip, I would suggest checking out River's Edge Kayak & Canoe.   They have been taking great care of us for the last 4 or 5 years. Another great company that operates on a slightly more serene section of the river is Burke's Canoe Trips.  They run their own campsite in a very nice redwood grove near Forestville.  The river is quite beautiful there, but it's just not as interesting.
