The sign on the west side of Route 49 marking the unnamed road to Wells Park.
At Walker Pond in Sturbridge MA.
Trip date is September 2012.
The Boston Kayaker just launced on Walker Pond in Sturbridge MA.
I am paddling to my right planning to hug the east bank on my paddle south.
State park campgrounds.
A pretty island on the southern section of Walker Pond.
I can hear and see the traffic on I-90 from here.
I decided to approach the I-90 thru this aquatic vegetations.
I can now see the tunnel under the highway.
Does not seem to have a lot of headroom . . .
On closer inspection, the water under the tunnel is about 2 feet lower because of this beaver dam in front of me.
Paddled close to the beaver dam, now directly on my left.
I paddled to the west side of this beaver dam to get a better view.
This beaver dam holds the Walker Pond about two feet higher and very few leaks.
I am now paddling back north.
Continuing my paddle north following the east bank.
Another pair of kayakers.
I was on the water for an hour and a half.
