    Cool rock formations created by a meteor strike millions of years ago.

    Fun kayaking in central Alabama about 20 minutes north of Montgomery. There are several places to rent kayaks locally costing around $25 for a good sit on top.

    The journey starts below Walter Bouldin Dam and finishes around Wetumpka Alabama. That makes the trip about seven miles. The Dam releases anywhere from 2000 to 10000 cfps during spring and summer. The Coosa River has three major sets of rapids River Falls, Moccasin Gap and the Pipeline. The largest is Moccasin Gap a class 3 rapid.

    Note there are cool rock formations created by a meteor strike millions of years ago.
