Although this was on the upper Gasconade, the river was already very large here. The first half of the trip consisted of some very large, slow pools punctuated with some good runs. The latter part of this trip was faster. After our lunch stop, we did find the perfect shady spot for a "rivercado" snack.Although this was on the upper Gasconade, the river was already very large here.

The river was flowing and the water was murky. There were no obstacles in this short distance and canoe travel was fine. The level was high due to the massive rainfall event over the area last week (Wed night and Thu). I believe a long float just on the Gasconade could have been attempted at this level.The river was flowing and the water was murky.

The water was still pretty murky. The flow was moderate with many slow, still pools. The riffles were fine but rare. This part of the river was nice enough but not very scenic.

The river was low and slow, but we were down far enough that we easily floated through the riffles without dragging. Even with slow water, ample stops, and a backwater excursion, we made the short trip in about four hours.The river was low and slow, but we were down far enough that we easily floated through the riffles without dragging.
