After launching at Lowell Road in Concord, I paddled the short distance to Egg Rock and bearing to my right began ascending the Assabet River up to Nashoba Brook. Photo at left was taken after passing under Rt. 2.
Earlier in the trip and just a little upriver from Willow Island some movement caught my eye and I watched a coyote disappear into the woods along the river's west side. Because the wooded section is narrow I decided to paddle close to the shore and see if I could find Mr. Coyote. Sure enough, peering into a shaded area I came eye to eye with him as he peered back at me...
