Kayaking: Mohawk River #3

Kayaking yesterday was pretty great, despite weather predictions to the contrary. It was pretty windy, but I managed to get to my goal, and the wind helped me return home. I went to the Mohawk River for the first time this summer.

I think this is actually a record distance for me. My next longest trip was around 18 miles on Harriman Reservoir.

A fire truck was spraying around water at the boat launch.

I haven't seen this much blue and yellow canal equipment since the Erie Canal, growing up.

I knew from looking at maps that there was some sort of dam or barrier about ten miles from where I started. That was my goal. I wasn't expecting it to look like this.

I didn't get much closer to the dam.

I sat and watched this boat go through the lock.
