The Ohio Kayak blog is all about the Ohio River region, the great outdoors and sharing stories of the river, streams, music and life (both past and present) on and near the water. We will continue to feature adventures, be it hiking, kayaking, food or music, that will get you outside of your home. So as we say at Ohio Kayak, "Get Outside and Play...." A little fresh air," exercise and "accidental education is a great recipe for success in life

The Day The Ohio River Froze.......
It's currently -5 degrees Fahrenheit. So incredibly cold. One has to go back almost 40 years to experience the last time the OHIO RIVER FROZE. Hard to believe that a flowing river like the Ohio River could freeze, but it happened. From Pittsburgh to Louisville the river froze solid with ice as deep as 8-12 inches. People walked and sledded across the Ohio River from Ohio to Kentucky and back; a once in a lifetime event (we hope!!)
