As many of you probably already know, I am very partial to rivers, and I found this great Facebook page this morning.
The Blue Ridge to the Bay: A Rappahannock River Odyssey
In April 2015 Friends of the Rappahannock volunteer Brent Hunsinger will paddle the Rappahannock from close to the source to the mouth where it meets the Chesapeake Bay. The intent of the paddle is to raise funds for Friends of the Rappahannock and awareness of the Rappahannock Rivers past, present, and future. Along the way we will highlight the many historical, natural, and cultural aspects of the river. We will also seek to document the challenges the river faces. Stay tuned on ways you can follow along before and during the odyssey and how to donate to help protect the Rappahannock!
It looks like Brent put in close to the headwaters of the Rappahannock on Sunday. He has already posted 11 times with photos. It looks like he is planning to be out there for about 2 weeks. I am definitely following his posts! You can see his original video right before he put in and follow his journey at https://www.facebook.com/rappriverodyssey?fref=nf
The photo is the first one he posted-I’m pretty sure it’s the 647 bridge close to Orlean and Hume-been there many times. Maybe I can talk to him when he returns from his trip and see if we can feature some of his photos.
Wishing you good weather and an awesome trip, Brent! What an great time of the year to be out there on the river. Stay warm!
