New Baltimore to Stuyvesant and back, 9 miles
June 19, 2008: I wanted to try the newly-noticed New Baltimore put-in, thought I would go from there down to Stuyvesant for a cup of coffee. Here's Cornell Park at New Baltimore.
There was a south wind with the tide going out so I went down with the tide figuring that I would at least have the wind behind me on the way back. The tide changed about half way back so I got to ride it both ways. The tide isn't really that big a deal, 1.2 mph or so.
This Pileated Woodpecker was so taken with ripping this log apart that he let me float right up to him.

I saw two adult eagles, but many more Great Blue Herons.
