Directions: Sasser Landing and Jennings Bluff, Alapaha River 2022-10-02.
Rescheduled a day later, to Sunday, October 2, 2022.
Yes, probably the fastest reschedule ever.
Turns out that Saturday is the Hahira Honeybee Parade, and we don’t want to disappoint 25,000 of our closest friends.
So Sunday, October 2nd it is for the Alapaha River paddle and Dead River Sink hike.
A two-hour paddle down the Alapaha River, and a two-hour hike roundtrip up the Dead River to the Dead River Sink and back, with Practicing Geologist Dennis Price.
If the Alapaha is low enough, we will also see two sinks in that river just before the Dead River Confluence.
There is nothing else quite like this in Florida (or Georgia).
Dennis Price for years has been recommending a state park here, at these jewels of the
Alapaha River Water Trail.
Hamilton County is making a county park nearby on land it owns.
The Dead River itself is a distributary: the Alapaha River runs into it, down into the Dead River Sink,
and does not come back up for twenty miles and three days until the Alapaha River Rise on the Suwannee River.
