Paddle Tales takes us on a kayak tour of river kayaking Northern Alabama.
Alabama has many great places to kayak. This can clearly be seen in the following episode of Paddle Tales. This episode takes us along on their journey down Alabama’s Paint Rock river, a free-flowing tributary of the Tennessee River.
Paint Rock river, in northern Alabama, is a perfect section of the river for novice kayakers as well as anyone looking for a nice day out on the water. It flows peacefully at a nice steady clip with very few if any rapids.
Its a very scenic journey that winds along under the canopy of over hanging trees. Their journey begins near the city of Guntersville, Alabama (Highway 72 to Butler Mill which is about 6 miles long).
Take a look at the following video clip to see for yourself.
I must say, I was impressed by the Liquid Logic Saluda 12 recreational kayak.
