As a paddler, once the spring runoff has dried up and the creeks stop running, I start looking forward to fall. Many of the dam controlled creeks in the northeast have scheduled releases in the fall and many also coincide with festivals. Every year the fall creek season kicks off with Beaverfest, a 3 day creek festival in New York. There are three sections of the Beaver all offering a little different challenge and the Raquette also releases this weekend.
Another favorite toy this summer is an old wildwater kayak. It too has been a big fixer upper project. I got it cracked and fiberglass it back to life. The first weekend of use I cracked it pretty good again.

Every year, for one day, we get to one of Vermont’s hidden gems - the West River. The West River is a perfect mix of adventure and leisure - it has a little bit more adventure than the Zoar Gap and is a little mellower than the Dryway.
