Beauty of river strikes boaters at Paddlefest
This is a little troubling in a way: since the sport is becoming so popular,
as is claimed in this article and many others, does this mean we'll start
seeing overcrowding and careless, irresponsible water users? If so, it's
only a matter of time before using those waterways becomes either heavily
restricted or, in the flag-waving American tradition, simply illegal.
I'm all for people discovering the sport of paddling, but those who do must
remember that they're making use of natural resources which must be respected
and left undisturbed.
Leave no trace.
