Kayaking Takes You Where No Road Can
What I love most about rivers is You can't step in the same river twice The water's always changing, always flowing But people, I guess, can't live like that We all must pay a price To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing What's around the riverbend Waiting just around the riverbend I look once more Just around the riverbend Beyond the shore Where the gulls fly free Don't know what for What I dream the day might send Just around the riverbend For me Coming for me
I don't know about you, but I wish I could live everyday as adventurous as Pocahontas. Not hesitating to find whats around the next corner of my life. So often I let the fear of the unknown decide for me whats to be expected. Some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen have been in my kayak, and if I had never let the river take me there I would have never seen them for myself.
For hundreds of years people would use the river as transportation. Floating wooden rafts with all their belongings down stream. I won't even take my iPhone kayaking with me. It's almost like the backroads of the backroads. There are over 3.5 million miles of river in the US alone. The adventure is awaiting just around the river bend.
This picture was taken of my favorite turn on the Elkhorn creek in frankfort KY. Letting the current push you through the turn is like being on a guided tour of the breath taking rock formations. My imagination goes wild trying to picture the landscape so many years ago when the water was sculpting these mountainous walls. This all only five minutes outside of our states capital, and most will never see it unless they let the river take them.
