On day two of our three-day trip, a friend of Jim’s helped us with a shuttle, and we put in on the Ocmulgee early Saturday morning.
We were treated to miles of winding river, with sandbars that appeared around almost every turn. Due to the drought and low water level, many of the sandbars had more vegetation on them than Google Earth images had led us to expect.
We saw interesting rock formations along the way:
We were all fascinated by the remnants of docks and tie-ups left from the history of logging in the area.
We finally chose a sandbar, and made camp.
After a great dinner, we were treated to a gorgeous sunset:
The Ocmulgee – our ninth river!
