At the Switch Road launch to Wood River in Hope Valley RI.
Trip date is May 2013.
The Boston Kayaker just launched on Wood River from the Swich Road Landing.
I had my son wait for me on the bridge just south of the launch.
This obstacle will turn out to be un-runnable.
Have to get out of my kayak and pull/push it over the trees.
Back on the water.
These set of strainers is impassable. Have to beach and portage my kayak around.
Ready to launch again past the trees.
Colorful underwater plants.
Wood River is becoming wider and pond-like.
Abutments of a bridge that was.
I can now see the bridge and hear the dam.
Landed just before the Woodville Dam.
