Whitewater on the Tohickon Creek 2013

Oh where, oh where is spring? 

 

After all, there was a spring dam release 
into the Tohickon Creek this past weekend.



Instead of spring like weather,
it was about 30 degrees with snow flurries.



And these crazy paddlers were in the cold water!



Some even had bare hands.



How they kept a grip on the paddle is beyond me!



Only my toes got wet
and I was sure I had frost bite!



My husband says I am crazy for sitting on the rocks
for 4 hrs. taking photos.



Clearly...he has not yet met crazy.



Compared to these people...
I am perfectly sane.

I took over 1200 but only kept 309 shots!  :)

  5. I agree you are totally sane. Kayaking in that near-freezing water is crazy! :)

  6. I'm sure my thin Texas/Arizona blood would not allow me to sit for more than 30 minutes in that weather! Of course, I wouldn't have gotten those great photos, either, now, would I?

  9. LOL, I'm sure it was plenty cold sitting on the rock, but you'd have to been insane (or a very determined kayaker) to go into that cold water. Great pictures!

  10. Great shots and yes those people are crazy. You've got nothing on them as far as crazy goes. Not only does it look cold but it looks scary too.

  12. Oh my goodness! I would have to agree with your hubby. I can see being there for an hour or so, but three perched on a rock in 30 degrees? Wowzers. The shots were terrific, though!

  13. Brrrr! Great shots though. We river raft on the American river here near Sacramento, CA but only in the summer when it's refreshing ;0) Great shot of you with your camera on the rocks too.
