Kayak Chicago

September 6, 2009

Arrived at Kayak Chicago, located off North Ave on the north branch of the Chicago River, at 9:30, signed our waiver, got our equipment together, listened to the instructions from the guide and were on the water at 10:15.  We paddled south to Wolf Point where the Merchandise Mart is located and then through the “Loop” and skyscraper canyon to Wabash Ave.  It was Labor Day weekend so there were lots of tour boats and waves to contend with downtown.  We got back to our put in location about 1:30.  Our guide did a nice job of covering interesting architectural/history topics along our 5.5 mile route.
