Basha Kill, NY
July 7, 2007
We tried to find a new place to paddle. We found Rio Reservoir on a web site and it sounded interesting. Printed out directions and headed out. Well . . . after getting totally lost and turned around on back roads, we ended up back on Route 209 (the road the Basha Kill is on) and decided to do the Basha Kill again.
It is always a fun place to paddle. Lots of birds, mostly Red-winged Blackbirds. But we did see a couple of Ospreys, a couple of immature Bald Eagles and a few Great Blue Herons. We saw a Cedar Waxwing, but the photos aren't any good.
We did manage a first for us. We put in at the D.E.C. launch area and managed to paddle to the Haven Road bridge. All in all, a very nice day on the water.
