Many Iowans consider October their favorite month to visit a Water Trail. Water levels favor leisurely floats, and provide frequent opportunities to explore sand and gravel bars for natural treasure. The colors and textures will change dramatically over the course of 31 days. The constant flow of migrating visitors will make each day unique. It’s a relaxing time, but with a hint of urgency, since we know that the warmth will fade with the colors.
There will be plenty of time to watch football when the snow flies. Now is the time to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Water Trails. Invite a friend, grab your camera, and get out there!
