Julie Bowland explored ahead the Alapaha River where we’ll be boating this Sunday June 14th, from Sasser Landing to Jennings Bluff.
This afternoon I explored the Alapaha River just a bit. It is only about 30 miles away, but kind of remote, mysterious and beautiful. Sunday I plan to kayak-the first image is the put in, the others about 3-4 miles downstream at Jennings Bluff. There seems to be plenty of water in it, but it is a twisty dark water river with steep banks, so I’m taking the kayak not canoe.

And yes, this river (or its sibling the Santa Fe River) really was the model for Xanadu in Coleridge’s poem.
