I'm used to paddling on the Wabash River. It was nice being on a river that isn't mud brown from being loaded with silt. The Green River is aptly named, the water was very green.
We were suprised by the abundance of wildlife in the area. Wild turkey, Great Blue Heron, and Deer frequented the banks for the whole trip. We saw fish pretty much everywhere we looked.
The scenery was beautiful. Cliffs, islands, trees, and even a small cave. My son paddled into the cave and was amazed by how cold the water flowing from the mouth was. We did stop about 2 miles from the Green River Ferry on a small island. While picking up Mussell shells, we found a small catfish lurking in one.
We pulled out at the Green River Ferry at around 7:45 pm, we traveled about 7.5 miles and had a great time.
