Final kayak exploration with my godson Alex. We put in at the ramp at 207 but went upstream until we could not get past a large tree, about 0.8 miles. We had to maneuver around lots of obstacles. We turned around and headed to the creek mouth out at the St Johns. This is a great creek with lots of shady areas, but only one place to exit the boats. We saw five gators, 3 juveniles, one medium gator and a glimpse of the bull of the creek. This was my longest paddle on Deep Creek due the upstream bushwacking! We celebrated with a trip to Rita's!
