Trip date May 2012. At the Albion Dam parking lot.
You do not want to kayak onto that . . .
For this trip, as my son is with me, I will put in just below the Manville Dam and do a one-way paddle to Albion Dam.
I just launched from that put in.
Tried to paddle upstream but I can not go very far.
Looking north, the Manville Dam is in the horizon in this picture.
Manville Dam picture taken earlier (not from a kayak).
I turned around and now facing downstream. Onwards to Albion Dam.
To my right are bikers on the Blackstone bike trail.
I can now see the Albion Dam's concrete structure poking out on the right bank.
I can hear it too!
