Last fall I worked with nonprofit and government officials to ensure that more paddlers can access Daddy’s Creek on the Cumberland Plateau. The paddling days were limited by old rules that did not take into account the importance of ecotourism in the region. Many folks devoted time and energy to this effort, and we were successful in changing the rules. Now, more people can enjoy Daddy’s Creek. Here is a story I wrote which just got published in Paddling Life, an excellent paddling publication. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing about and paddling the creek!
