This is a unique opportunity to be on the river at one of the most magical times – under a full moon! We will head out to the river mid-afternoon and cross to one of our favorite islands. There we will get a fire going, enjoy the evening and eat dinner together, and watch the rising of the full moon. Around 9pm we will start paddling back, the light of the moon guiding our way. Feel free to bring a sketchbook, camera, or musical instrument – you may feel inspired!
Location: Meet at Quapaw Canoe Company, 291 Sunflower Ave, Clarksdale, MS. We will drive in personal vehicles from there to the launch point on the Mississippi River. (~25min drive)
