We wanted to paddle a place to see some of the autumn colors. We decided on Wappingers Lake in Wappingers Falls. No place we had seen had much color on the trees, mostly shades of brown, but we wanted to try any way.
We put in at a village park and, following the south shore, paddled east under Route 9 to a small waterfall on Wappingers Creek. Following the north shore we headed west until we came to a good sized dam that blocked our progress. Then back to where we started.
We didn't see a lot of color but we saw quite a few turtles and some birds.
