Guided Canoe Trip to the Ox Bow Lakes in Perry County

September 15, 2018 @ 2:30 am - 11:00 am UTC-6

Ox Bows are old river meanders that have been cut off, leaving a naturally-formed lake. The Perry County Lakes are Cahaba River meanders that have grown up into Cypress and Tupelo swamps with lots of Spanish moss and unusual wildlife.
