Kayaking The Buffalo

 The weather has been kinda gloomy since our arrival here in Gilbert, AR. Tuesday, that all changed and we were off on our Buffalo River adventure. Our put in was Baker Ford, west of Hwy 65 and we took out at the Gilbert access just down the street from our Campground.

 The river is very clear with a turquoise hue and winds through the Ozark mtns. The flow is slow and steady, but speeds up to a pretty good clip in the narrow areas resulting in some fun little Class 1 rapids.

 The river is lined with high cliffs and deep woods.

We were out for approx 4 hours and had a great time. Most of the time we just let the river float us along at it's own speed with an occasional paddle from us, now thats a float trip!

Tomorrow we leave Gilbert and the Buffalo, travel 50 miles to the town of Cotter and our spot along the White River where we'll spend the next week. So until next time........................
