There's a lot to love about autumn. Cooling temps, colorful foliage, migrating birds, and fall flowers are high on the list. But for Florida paddlers, one of the greatest gifts of the season is the opportunity to visit some of the beautiful spring rivers that are overrun by the squealing hordes in warmer months. Rainbow River, which we'll be paddling on November 17 and again several times in the coming months, is a prime example.
