Following the Memorial Day celebration and official opening ceremony for the James Kiehl Park, nine paddlers put their boats into the Guadalupe River at the River Road crossing next to the park. The river flow was a much-below-average 45 cfs. But this was still sufficient for a nice run down to the Waring crossing.

Robbie certainly didn't look like a beginner.

No one was in a hurry to leave.

The water may have been on the low side, but the scenery was typical Upper Guadalupe.
At the take-out, we were able to load all nine boats onto my trailer and all nine paddlers into my van for the short drive back to the park.
