The cool winds are blowing, the smell of wood smoke wafts through the air, and my eyes feast upon a brilliant display of colors: a rainbow of kayaks cruising up the Ledges of the French Broad.
Oh, the NAWF was a good time this year as usual, but a tid bit nipply out. This report is going up quite late but hey, at least it’s here now. To explain more, NAWF is the North Alabama Whitewater Festival. 2008 was the fourth year of this successful, deep south whitewater festival and championship. NAWF activities include a waterfall freestyle and boater-x at Short Creek Falls and a freestyle, hole comp at the Locust Fork of the Warrior River. Andy Gates and I headed down for this year’s event.
