It is late January and we have just had a decent amount of rain on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. It is projected to be mid to high 50's on Sunday and there are a number of rivers running. We chat about what would be fun that we haven't paddled before and settle on Daddy's Creek. There are 2 kayakers and myself in this little expedition. It is going to be a tough paddle and being cold is not an option. For this run I am thankful for the extremely durable Devil's Club dry suit from IR.
Daddy's Creek is a mostly class III, with some class IV, creek in the eastern part of central Tennessee. This is a typical southeastern creek with constricted, shallow, rock filled lines. Since it is on the Plateau is cuts through a cliff lined gorge with some scenic views overhead.
