Harvest Moon on the Manistee

Features Kim Steffes It had been a year in our thoughts, the opportunity to paddle the whole Manistee River. In the fall of 2011, my sister Dana, brother Jan and I had a very successful three-day paddle on the AuSable River. Jan paddled his inflatable boat and Dana and I took my Bell North Wind red canoe.
