The rains of early January have given way to some great floats around the state this Winter. Here is some nice video that Laramy Ridley shared with us of Snow Creek/Illinois Bayou on a recent trip.

Arriving at the Pinnacle Mountain parking lot, we found ourselves in an anthill of activity as boats were toted down from the trucks and shuttles were being set at the takeout.
