kayaking (a different part of) the Winooski

A couple of weeks ago, oddmonster and I took a trip along a different section of the Winooski — putting in at the bottom of the Bolton dam, and taking out at the Community Green in Richmond, VT.

Oddmo tells the story of the trip (including the moose [!]) much better than I; all I can provide is the data.



For those following along with the AMC River Guide, this trip stradles the Winooski River : Montpelier → Jonesville and Jonesville → Essex Junction sections…
