Real Fall Feel

Though the calendar told me fall arrived more than three weeks ago, it wasn't until yesterday that I really felt its presence.   No sooner had I launched into the Nashua River at the Oxbow in Still River than a cool breeze out of the north had me reaching for a warmer jacket and hat.

This now abandoned osprey nest will hopefully endure the coming winter and be ready to provide a safe haven for next spring's hatchlings...

One thing about paddling this stretch of the Nashua I particularly enjoy is how you can stop on the way home and look out upon Wachusett Mountain and the valley you just paddled through...

Trash encountered was the typical mix with 4 of the Nashua's signature quart-sized glass beer bottles..
