After a particularly cold period thanks to a polar vortex; good weather for the weekend made us want to explore the Silver River. We felt the warm snap would bring out the wildlife and hopefully the much storied monkeys of Silver River.

So my brother Gregg and I set of to Ray's Wayside to paddle to the head spring and back. Rain and drizzle all the way from St. Augustine; this turned out to be a ten.

Ray's has a hand ramp that is lined with rubber making it a great kayak launch.
