As the UAC staff and I were washing kayaks at the carwash at 11:30 pm after the Red Moon float, 2 questions keep coming to my mind. The first, where did all of this mud come from?!?!? I was on the float. With the river levels so low there was way more sand than mud?! The second, what person in their right mind would be washing kayaks at 11:30 pm at night?! Flash forward to this morning as I was going through the pictures from the float and I began to remember why we do moon light floats; happy paddlers, lots of smiles, floating and chatting about life, a colorful sunset, a campfire on the sand bar, hotdogs cooking on a stick, smores (which we ran out of quickly, sorry paddlers, next year more Reeses), music, campfire chatter and yes that awesome, awesome super moon that rose up off the eastern skyline and into a starry sky!
Here’s to another spectacular moon light float on the Kaw!
