Our journey led us to the Buffalo National River in northwest Arkansas. This is not the first time we’ve visited The Buff. The last time we took the kids on this trip we were caught in a large flood and escaped unscathed, so we felt certain that “Paddlin’ the Buff: the Remix” would be great. And it was! Ahem…until the snowstorm hit, but we’ll save that for later.
We had gorgeous weather that allowed some great hiking two days of canoeing that tallied up to almost 20 miles. Aside from afew tips into chilly waters (don’t worry, the babe wasn’t in a boat), the group had an awesome time on the river. The water level was a bit low which led to some portaging, but don’t let that fool you, boats can sink and oars can be whisked away on even the shallow rapids.
Cora was an excellent camper and she’s already learned some of the essentials of what makes a camping trip great.
