Lester River Kayak Race 2017 (video)

Had fun watching the annual Lester River Kayak Race today. The organizers have to wait till the ice overhangs are off the river (safety), and the flow is properly fast. At that point the decision is made to race! This pool plunge is about a one mile hike from my home!

In the video … one kayaker goes forward, and one goes backward!

And some more photographs. The Lester River is a wilderness river which screams down to Lake Superior on the NE edge of Duluth, Minnesota.
