Gliding Down to Gleasondale

While this morning proved warm, the TV weather forecaster was warning of an approaching "back-door cold front" that would be moving inland from the ocean.  One TV newswoman asked the forecaster "why can't we, instead, have a 'front-door warm front'?"  It's a damn good question. 

At any rate, I got out on the Assabet River while things were still warm and launched at Cox Street in Hudson before paddling down to the dam in Gleasondale...
A paddler would not want to be too distracted when approaching this dam, for there are no warning signs that I could discern.  It wouldn't be hard to imagine a pair of paddlers, deep in conversation, going right over the edge.  Hope it never happens.

On the trip back to Cox Street, clouds were filling in fast...


As usual, trash in this stretch of river was plentiful...

There were 39 recyclable containers (5 redeemable) and 59 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish. 
YTD = 2527
