Assabet Rising?

Launched early this morning at Magazu's Landing in Stow and found the Assabet River several inches higher thanks to some recent rainfall.  Hope this trend continues.  

The banks of the river are lush and most plants look to have reached full growth (photo above).

Paddled the 5 mile stretch between Gleasondale and the Ben Smith Dam in Maynard.  The section upstream of Sudbury Road required one up-and-over and a couple of duck-unders such as this...

Other than mute swans, Canada geese, wood ducks, kingfishers, osprey, a small hawk, a cormorant, and some remote-controlled planes at Crow Island, I had the place to myself. 

Trash recovered along the way...
