A wimpy nor'easter...


Not much in the way of rainfall, but lot's of leaves fell.

The Musconetcong River, pictured above at the car wash below Hackettstown, has actually gone down slightly (it's at 2.46' right now), which is a bummer. 'Twas hoping to paddle the whitewater section below Saxton Falls and that is more enjoyable when the river at Bloomsbury is above 2.50 and preferably closer to 3.00. It doesn't look promising for that stretch.

Tuesday is a day off and warm temps - must get on a river!

-- "He who hears the rippling of rivers in these degenerate days will not utterly despair."

You got it brother.

If we get through November the river usually falls down to normal levels (4 or 5')
