Ok so the Red river is not the Columbia, and it really doesn't even roll is kinda putzes along, but floating down it fun and you don't run the same risks as the mighty Columbia. So on Sunday we packed up the car and got a bag of ice for a nice, 5 hour float down the river. It was great. We saw tons of turtles, a snake and a vulutre. Only a few aplances in the river and no cars. Though I must say I was pooped at the end. It was a great way to spend a weekend.
