High Country fun: Floating down the river

Summer has unofficially arrived in the High Country. The recent weather has been near perfect for spending some quality time in the area's many parks and outdoor playgrounds.

And while it may still be a bit cool, the Watauga River waters running alongside Valle Crucis Community Park are already attracting kids with a need for leisurely speed. The shallow waterway is perfect for a gentle float in a one-person boat.
