A Busy Assabet

The Acton Canoe Launch (at left) was a busy spot this morning as a good-sized contingent of Rhode Island Canoe & Kayak Association members began a journey down the Assabet River that ultimately brought them to the Old North Bridge in Concord, MA.

It was difficult to get an accurate count, but I believe there were 17 + boats that included 3 canoes and 14 or so kayaks.

After rounding the river's first bend, Route 62 was passed under for the first of 3 times...

At Damondale we passed through the broken dam one by one...

A mile below the dam, this paddler exited the river at Pine Street...

  ...to attend another commitment.  The others continued their northward journey.

Trip leader Erik's photos can be seen here.

A small haul of trash was grabbed from behind a snag...
...and consisted of the usual culprits.

You're welcome Erik, I appreciated the chance to, once again, paddle with RICKA folks. Always fun to pass through that broken dam.
