Frio River -- Third Crossing to Second Crossing

Frio River -- Third Crossing to Hwy 127 Crossing @ Neal's Lodge
and January 1, 2007
We were supposed to kayak the Nueces River on New Year's Day
but there wasn't enough water to kayak in. So, we went back to the
Frio and repeated the same section we had kayaked on Saturday but
floating on to the Hwy 127 Crossing.
We put in at about where the "8" is in the "CR-348" that points down (I think).
There were several rapids in the bottom section of the river. I got wet,
not from doing my usual "half-Eskimo" but rather from getting stuck
crosswise in a small waterfall (not making a proper entry), getting out
of the kayak, and slipping down into the water. It was invigorating!!!
The following photos were taken with my new camera, a Panasonic
DMC FZ-7 (6.1Meg, 12x optical zoom). I like my new toy!!!

no "spectators" on these runs except for a Heron, I didn't get a picture of it
