Bank erosion is very noticeable in this area. Undercutting is significant. There are thousands of slides taking beautiful trees into the rising waters. The river is getting wider than one would expect this close to the headwaters.
We paddled with headwinds most of the day, but still managed to get in twenty two miles. The possibility of rain tonight made the picnic shelter in Palisade, MN a perfect shelter. Walked into town for dinner and enjoyed a delicious Hot Beef Sandwich. Fell asleep by 9pm and hope to shove off by 0800 tomorrow to get in 30 miles, hopefully before the rains come.
