Wallkill River Autumn Paddle
5 November 2005
Mary and I had been trying to kayak the Wallkill River in autumn for a few weeks. The weather, work schedules or other things we had to do kept getting in the way.
On Saturday 5 November 2005 we finally made it. We put in about 4 miles from New Paltz at a D.E.C. hand launch site.
We kayaked from the hand launch area past the NYS Thruway until we saw a sign on the bank that read "DANGER - Do not proceed beyond this point - Waterfall ahead". We thought this might a good place to turn around and head back to the car.
It turned out to be a beautiful day for a paddle. The weather was great, short sleeve temperatures and clear and sunny. The colors were past prime and a lot of the trees were a dull brown instead of the yellows and reds they were a couple of weeks earlier. The surprise was that we only saw 2 other boaters on the water.
