South Half of South CLAPS is in PERFECT order right now.  If you want to see what the paddle trail looks like, Go here and click "View Map Fullscreen" - which is below the thumbnails of the photos on the right side.

This route encompassed Almost Kinda Sort a CLAPS Cache, S CLAPS 52 down to 42, across to 55, and 54, 53 and 52 as we returned to the Park.

Kirbydox and I went paddling in front of the storm this morning, only getting rained on as we crossed the lake to Clear Lake Park.  The caches on the WEST side of S CLAPS are good to go.  We replaced two missing caches, fixed a broken top or two, freshened everything up and and replaced nearly all the logs just so they were in better condition.  

 

So the following fall into our run:

 

25 - 28

40 - 51

 

Known possible issues:  #55

 

We will paddle the east side soon and do some maintenance there and hit #55 at that time.

 

The north side, right now is hosed. See the hyacinth thread.  The little water in the photo Syd took earlier in the week is gone.  No water visible except directly below the bridge there are a few puddles of openness.

 

The S CLAPS areas between Bay Area Park and S CLAPS 27 had many patches of the stuff and seedlings covering the entire surface in areas.  It was easy to navigate today, though, and much of it I just paddled through.  None of the caches took much effort to get to -- far different than when the last cachers went through the area before they sprayed.

 

Once you got around the peninsula past #27 it really was not an issue at all.

 

Here is the area around #26.  You can see in the background that it's not like this all over (clear water in the main waterway), but in this 'cove area' all those little green seedlings covering the water are going to grow.  But, for now, far better than before they sprayed.

Kirbydox and I did a maintenance run on all of the East side of S CLAPS today.  We had to archive #55 in the middle of the lake as the entire manmade structure that was there has disappeared.  All the rest are ready to be found and in great shape now.

 

Paddled from Clear Lake Park to Bay Area Park.  Decided to check out the Wall of Denial on getting to N CLAPS.

I was driving down Space Center Blvd yesterday, and there they were on the side of the road doing STS cache maintenance.  Conscientious cache owners, those two!

Finally got EveryTrail to upload from the app.

If you click View Map Fullscreen (lower right, below the map) it will go into slideshow mode (or should).   Will give you an idea of the conditions, hyacinth, and other debris from recent storms and heavy rains.

Horsepen Bayou has been refreshed by the CO  - TheBicycler.   As of now, all of S CLAPS is in perfect condition. 

 

Meanwhile, N CLAPS is for all practical purposes unobtainable.

If the water hyacinth gets a little bit thicker, you could walk the N CLAPS. :2funny:
