At Lackey Pond on Lackey Dam Road in Sutton.
Trip date is June 2012.
Putting in at Lackey Pond.
Just launched. Paddling south.
Fishing from a boat.
I am trying to find the Mumford River on this swampy pond . . .
Ok. Found this clear river path.
Front of me (right of river) is the Lackey Dam Road.
The north-bound Route 146 bridge.
Just past the Route 146 bridges.
A downed tree on Mumford River.
A turtle on a downed tree on Mumford River.
This one is easy to duck under . . .
My kayak is sitting on top of this tree and need to push/slide myself forward.
This tree is too low to duck under. I have to slide my body forward into the inside front of the kayak so I can lean back to go under.
Another set of obstacles . . .
I can not go under this one . . .
It is at this point a decided to turn around. Been paddling upstream on the Mumford River for about an hour now.

Back to the swampy Lackey Pond.
