Our first paddle of the year!
We launched from The DEC Athens boat ramp just north of the village of Athens. Headed into Murderer's Creek. You can go just past route 385 bridge when rocks and debris stop travel.
Out of Murderer's Creek back into the Hudson River. Follow the west shore line north. Into a small bay with no outlet. Back to the Hudson and around some islands.
Cross the Hudson into another weed choked bay. Stopped at a sandy beach near the bay. Saw an immature Bald Eagle. Entered the bay. We scared off a couple of Double-crested Cormorants, some Canada Geese and a pair Mute Swans.
Left the bay, back into the Hudson then north again into Stockport Creek. Then back south to the DEC boat ramp.
