  GRAND RIVER - The Oxbow

Matt and I met up with Randy and Candace for a quick paddle on the Grand River. The Oxbow is a great day paddle, as you can canoe for 16kms without a shuttle! "The Oxbow" is just that, an oxbow in the Grand River which loops back on itself. This means that you can walk back to the start easily to pick up the cars!
