Mississippi River

It's September 2018 and I joined a team of adventurers to explore the Mississippi River.
We spent four days and three nights.

Our trip was provided by the Quapaw Canoe Company,
located in Clarksdale, Miss.

Our leader, company owner and river expert is John Ruskey.

Note the tug and barges in the background.
These were common sights throughout the trip.
The Mississippi is a commercial water way.

Getting Ready to Go
All in we had 10 people and two dogs.
It all fit into two hand made canoes.
One was 29 feet long and the the 26 feet long,


Lots of gear and people.
Good thing we went down river.

And off we go.....
