Trapped in the Oxbow

After two recent trash patrols in which my trash crate never got full, today it was full after only half a mile.  That's when things got even worse for at the next bend in the river a natural trash-trap had captured a considerable amount of flotsam...

By the time I left the above spot, and two others adjacent to it, my boat was full to the gills.

Here, spilled-out, is the trash gathered up in paddling just one (1) mile of the Nashua River downstream from the Oxbow canoe launch...

At least the trash trap had been fairly efficient as I didn't see too much trash in the next mile and a half downstream to Route 2.
