A Leafless Assabet

Like the song said "All the Leaves are Gone" (though the skies weren't grey).  Things are looking pretty stark 'round these parts of late. 
This morning I paddled a very shallow Assabet River between Egg Rock and Nashoba Brook and when I stopped to enjoy a mug-up of hot cocoa, the smell of someone's wood-burning stove served as a reminder that Old Man Winter's arrival is imminent.  Hopefully, he'll be in a benevolent mood this year.


The sun's low angle lit the underside of the Rt. 2 bridge on my return trip downriver...
 
Trash was plentiful today...
...and included 38 recyclable containers (10 redeemable) and 40 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish such as an old bicycle tire/tube, plastic bags, and Styrofoam.  YTD = 5842

Great blog! I coordinate a river cleanup on the Ohio River and I really enjoy the photos. Thanks.

Thanks for your comment Lisa. Always good to hear from other river cleanup folks.

Neat bridge photo. Looks like there is an under bridge skate park ramp.
