A paddler who brakes for trash.

In the Company of Musquash
Spent the best part of yesterday afternoon paddling the Assabet River from Ice House Landing in Maynard to the village of Gleasondale in Stow.
Aside from 2 other kayakers, the critters mostly encountered were many mushquashes (aka Muskrats). They were here, there, and everywhere. Some patrolled the shoreline...
...while others passed like ships in the night...
This recently returned eastern kingbird regally watched over the proceedings...
Clear passage up and downriver was impeded by two fallen trees at the same location...
The view (above) is looking downriver about a half mile below Route 62. On the left side is a submerged log with barely enough water above it to allow my boat to slide across.
Route 62 and the Gleasondale mill building basked in the afternoon sunshine...
Thoughts of ascending Fort Meadow Brook ended with this view of the box culvert...
Trash gathered up along the way...
Still more Scope bottles.
