It was a nice autumn trip, with the trees vibrant colors. The water was a bit cold, but tolerable for short bursts for getting in and out. While we were late to our campsite, and initially missed it because it was dark, we did find a nice clearing in hammel woods where we were not bothered the entire night.
The increased level also made the shorewood rapids stronger. Nothing dangerous, just fast flowing water. That is my favorite part of the river.
Overall: solid trip. The weather held up pretty well, and there were no overwhelming challenges to overcome.
