Xmas Eve on the Assabet River

It was just too nice of a winter's day to pass up getting in a short but sweet Xmas Eve paddle on the Assabet River.  I launched near noontime at Pine Street in West Concord and headed upstream to the large blowdown above the Thoreau School.  There I turned about and drifted with the current for the short ride down to Nashoba Brook.  The river was chugging, though water levels remain relatively low.

My modest trash haul included the appropriate holiday colors...
There were 15 recyclable containers (3 redeemable) and 18 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish such as plastic bags, polystyrene cups, and nip bottles.  YTD = 6870

The best part was that I and my newly decorated water bottle were home in time to scope things out under the Xmas Tree...

   Happy Holidays to all!
