On our free day, our Volunteer Vacation crew from the American Hiking Society was treated to a nine mile paddle down Michigan's lovely Pere Marquette River.

The land in many areas was privately owned and some very impressive homes were passed, but quite a bit of the paddle was through pristine wilderness and we all enjoyed the solitude and beauty.
