Salt Creek in Illinois

Trip Overview

6 mile trip, 4 hour float. Took the kayak and some inner tubes. Right after the starting bridge there was a large tree down. We got hung up on it, but noticed that had we stayed far right, we would have made it.

Saw an eagle, duck, several birds.

There were several sandbars along the way to stop at.
