I paddled to the southern end of Lake Meredith again a few mornings ago into what I think is the Canadian River channel. The reason I think it’s the channel is that the water changes into a reddish brown and seems to be slowly moving north. I can only float about a mile up this way before the water gets too shallow to go any further, but it’s a great place to bird, with all the Muddy Waters and cattails and salt cedar. It is a really quiet, peaceful place and worth the rather long paddle it takes to get there. I took these photographs.
