Autumn is the best season for canoeing and kayaking: there are no crowds, the bugs are gone, and the water is still warm.

Awesome video/article Philip. This has me wanting to get back out on the water. 

Fall is an awesome time of year. The crisp morning air, the foliage, the smell in the air..... The lack of bugs lol. 

Thank you for sharing this. Love it.

It really is a great time to be on the water, any water, and in a kayak or a canoe. There's more to me than just backpacking. Haha!

Thank you, Philip. Nice video! What camera did you use? Here in the NW, our local club always has a fall colors trip on the Wenatchee River. While we don't have the variety of deciduous trees you have in the east, we do have vine maples and the spectacle of spawning salmon.

Good photography, nice soundtrack too! Thanks for putting this together. Helmet cams RULE! 


Sea kayaks are a great way to travel Class 1 or 2 rivers. I love my Eddyline Sea Star sea kayak.
