Mississippi River Day 18 (Libby Township campsite, 240.8 miles)

As soon as I got on the water this morning I saw the campsite that I had thought I missed last night. I actually didn't pass it, but had instead stopped short by about 200 yards. And this time it wasn't even my fault. The DNR map had the campsite on the wrong side of a bend in the river, so after I made the bend, I thought I had passed it. Oh well.

Today I saw more wildlife, including two turtles, otters, and another water snake. At camp tonight there were gnats and flies, but somehow no mosquitoes, so I didn't get any new bites. I went for a swim in the afternoon, which felt good to cool off for a bit, and rinse off any sweat.
