Keg in Tow on the Sudbury River
At the Greenways Conservation Area I went ashore and enjoyed the elevated view along with my lunch...
My destination today was Heard Pond as I wondered if it would be iced-over or open water. Just beyond Indian Point, I entered the narrow passageway which leads to the shallow pond...
This musquash house was in the marshy area between the pond and the river...
Also seen today were Canada geese, a belted kingfisher, a great blue heron, and this beaver wearing a lustrous coat...
Back at the Greenways I picked up my keg and began the slow but steady towing to Rt. 20. It was all about torque at the sacrifice of speed. That's why the beaver didn't notice me 'til I was nearly on top of him.
At the boat launch my trash haul looked pretty small next to the keg...
YTD = 695. Examining the keg closer revealed it bears the Anheuser-Busch name and has a 3" longitudinal crack which may account for it containing so much water. I'm not sure if it can be recycled or will need to be disposed of as scrap.

A kegger, now that is how to attract more folks out to a litter picking party.
Bernie, Yes, when full of cold beer these containers can draw quite a crowd.
When full of river water, not so much!
Anyone seeing me trying to drain the water out would have been amused!
