Paddling the LA River

You don't think of the flood control waterway, known as the LA River as a place for kayaking. Oftentimes, this river is sunken in concrete and runs the side of the freeways.

There is a move on to use the river in a recreational way...and each summer, small groups are allowed to kayak for half or whole days.  As part of a pack of 10 we ambled down the calm waterway.

Wearing light waterproof clothing and doing paddle-lite work, I enjoyed watching osprey swoop and cormorants speed overhead. Not to mention about 5 varieties of favorite.

Tickets were gone within a couple of hours....but if you get a chance to go....go for it!
