Meramec River Trip

View in a larger map

It had been a long time since we had taken a company trip.  So, with some of my co-workers having expressed interest I organized a company canoe trip.  I decided that since there would be several kids that we would return to Meramec State Park for their 5 mile float.  This was where Colin had his first float trip at 18 months.  It is a very family friendly section of the Meramec River.  We all met at our 3 reserved campsites on Friday night, August 19th.  Saturday morning we were greeted with a thunderstorm, and many wondered if we would be able to canoe that day.  Having faith that it would clear up we made breakfast under the canopies and it soon quit raining. By the time we put in at the Sappington Bridge Access it had turned into a beautiful day!  Though the trip was short, and I had to stay in a campground with the noisy campers, it was a very nice trip visiting with everyone around the campfire.  I hope to get everyone out again next year!
