canoeing: upper delaware river

October 24, 2008

For the last mild weekend (72 degrees) of the year, canoeing on the Delaware River at Pond Eddy is the plan. Pond Eddy is a 2-hour drive from home. It was 3 years ago, when I began this blog. One of my earliest posts included a canoe trip from this same place, Indian Head Canoes at Pond Eddy, on the New York State side. Last time, we were the only ones on the 9-mile trip downriver. This time, there are more people – college kids on inflatable rafts, and a school of kayakers. It costs about $75 for two to rent a canoe. I have a fishing pole, and megaworms, and see some of the largest bass off the side of the canoe, but it is late in the afternoon and nightfall approaches quickly. Plus, the whitewater, although exciting for me, requires attention to navigate. Or else, it would be a hypothermic dip, if we were to capsize.
