Good thing I have friends who can get out of work at a moments notice, like Eric Sween did today. He made it possible to paddle the Musconetcong on my day off from the vineyard. The river never did eclipse 2.50' so I bailed on doing the Saxton Falls section. It's just a little too bony for me at that level, specially with that soft spot underneath the Howler.
We met at the takeout near Bloomsbury, just downstream from I-78. Put-in at Hampton Borough park. 2.50 is an ideal level for this stretch of the river. Saw a few black duck, great blues, kingfishers, and other wise uneventful but very peaceful run. Balm for the soul.
