The famous weather predicting rodent Punxsutawny Phil says we'll have six more weeks of winter, this despite the absolutely spring-like weather. There is still plenty of time to feel the bite of the winter wind and maybe even a blizzard or two. It's also time to begin planning summer river trips.
There are several PA River Sojourns planned for May and June 2012. Some of the sojourns will take paddlers through iconic landscapes of the Highlands Region. A few examples include the Swatara Creek Sojourn scheduled for May 5-6; Schuylkill River Sojourn scheduled for June 2-8; Delaware River Sojourn set for June 24-30; and the Lehigh River Sojourn scheduled for June 22-25.
River Sojourns can be a few days or last an entire week and typically include catered meals, campgrounds, boat shuttles, day and evening programs, and lots of camaraderie with paddlers of all skill levels and boat types. All of the sojourns strive to highlight the natural, cultural, and scenic features found along each stream and provide a safe and family-friendly river experience.
For a complete list of PA Sojourns check with the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers and their Facebook page - they'll soon be publishing a list of events from across the state.
