Man Canoes AL Scenic River Trail, Writing Book
An Alabama man is paddling more than 630 miles for a book he plans to publish about the Alabama Scenic River Trail.
David Haynes began his journey on May 1st in Rome, Georgia, at the start of the Coosa River.
The photographer is taking photos along the way for his book he’s writing with the support of the University of Alabama Press.
Friday, about halfway through his trip, he stopped in Montgomery at the Marina.
"This is going to be like a journal format. I'll be doing it day one is chapter one, day two is chapter two kind of thing. So I'm taking notes like when I sit down at camp tonight I'll type notes with my iPad of what I did everyday so it doesn't all run together and that way, when I get off the river, it will mostly be written, I'll just have to clean it up, coordinate the photos and do the maps,” said David Haynes.
He hopes to reach Fort Morgan in Mobile by mid June.
