Hudson River, Germantown, NY
June 24, 2007

The last Hudson River paddle we did was from Germantown, but we headed north to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.  This time we launched at Germantown and headed south.

We made it as far as a public park/boat launch in Cheviot.  Quiet paddle.  Not much traffic on the Hudson River this day.  As we were setting up our kayaks for the day's paddle we met a man that stood on a surfboard and paddled.  He is the first few pictures for this paddle.

We try to paddle down one bank and back up the other side when we do the Hudson River.  But in the section the channel is very close to the other shore.  We liked the peace and quiet so we stayed on the eastern side in both directions.
