2006 Hudson Highlands Paddle

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

Kayakers: Bruce Taterka, Jürgen Englerth

A very hot and sunny day on the Hudson. No wind and no waves.


09:30a

Push off on Moodna Creek at the boat ramp above the Route 9W bridge. We paddled about 0.7 miles until we reached the outlet to the mighty Hudson through a small bridge.







We crossed to Pollopel Island and paddled downriver to the US Military Academy at West Point where we made a u-turn.




After crossing the river to Constitution Island, we explored the river channels around the island and took a lunch break near the railroad tracks to stretch our legs and get some shade.



03:10p

Back at Route 9W.
