An early morning gives you an unique view on things. On the Neuse River.
Much of the Upper Neuse River is lined with this tall grass. It helps to anchor the soil and keep erosion to a minimum. Canoeing and kayaking helps you get up close to this unique habitat.
A little rock stands its ground against the power of the Neuse River. Coming down the river in a kayak or on a SUP, this is one you would want to avoid.
Once you get away from the busy areas, the banks of the Neuse River are covered in footprints from raccoon, beaver, and deer. A canoe or kayak is the perfect way to see the animals that left the tracks.
An early morning on the Neuse River found us navigating by moonlight. A full moon and clear sky provides plenty of light to canoe, kayak, or SUP the Neuse River or Falls Lake.
The skeletons of warmer days still haunt the banks of the Neuse River. A canoe or SUP will give you a unique view of the winter landscapes.
A couple small waves form in the upper Neuse River when the water is flowing just right. Perfect for a little fun in a kayak or canoe.
