From Earth to Home (Geog 100)

Had a terrific time with geography professors Duane Griffen and Adrian Mulligan and several students from their class entitled, "From Earth to Home." Part of the course experience is to paddle the Susquehanna River and so we put in at Watsontown and paddled south to Lewisburg.

Overcast skies with slight drizzle early on. Temperature: 75°F; Humidity: 52%, winds out the NW about 2 mph. Discharge in the river was
6,7303 sec-1; well below (almost half) of what is was last year (2008): 12,0003 sec-1 on May 1, 2008. Saw some big fish (presumably catfish) scurry away from the shadows of the boats as we drifted over the riffles near Milton and Lewisburg.
