Kayaking the Lehigh River from Lehighton to West Bowmans

After a whole summer with hardly any really hot days, we finally got two 90+ degree days in September, one of them right on the day that Uncle Dan and I were going to kayak the Lehigh.  This was his first time doing any serious rapids in a kayak, and he breezed right through it.  There are several decent class Is and a couple of class IIs in this section, and we went through all of them without taking any swims, except for the times I jumped in because it was so hot.
