    On Saturday, Sept. 23, the HCKC explored the Ohio RIver again.   We put in at Tanner's Creek and paddled down stream past Aurora.   My pictures are at:

    After leaving Tanner's Creek ramp, we saw a large barge come by but there was almost no wake since the navigation channel was across the river.  We then paddled down towards Aurora and explored North Hogan Creek which is just east of Aurora.   Paddling the creek was enjoyable since there were several bridges to paddle under.    Part way up the creek, we passed cows who were wading into it to counter the unseasonably warm weather (not a good place to practice rolling for any number of reasons).     

    We found a reasonable beach and had lunch before paddling downstream to the Ohio again.   We then paddled  downstream past Aurora.  However, we headed back after a mile or two because we were no longer protected from the 90 degree weather like we were in the creek.   Fortunately, we had the wind in our face heading back up to Tanner's Creek so everyone felt cooler.  

    I measured the current to be around 0.6-0.7 mph so it was not an issue.   We ended up with about an 11 mile paddle in an area that I've never explored before.   Many thanks to Robert Moore for scouting the trip and leading us on this adventure.
