Simple Clicks – ice

The Lackawanna River was lined by these ice formations this past weekend during Shiverfest.  I’ve never seen these before and can only assume that they are a result of the recent weather, with temperatures that swung from above freezing to well below.  However they were formed, they lined most of the course just above water […]

Shiverfest 2015

Following weeks of preparation, Shiverfest 2015 is now complete and I can proudly say that I’ve kayaked the Lackawanna River – or at least a small section of it – during January.  This past Saturday, under ideal conditions, we put in at the East Parker Street launch and did 2.75 miles downstream to the take-out […]

Dry spell

My name is Brent, and it’s been four weeks since I’ve picked up a camera.  The title says it all – it’s a dry spell.  Mainly due to the confluence of holidays, illness, and lousy weather.  And I’ll put most of the blame on the weather, which has been a wild seesaw between unseasonable warm and […]

An ugly box

Got this in the mail the other day and liked it so much that I snapped a photo of it.  Yes, on my phone.  Fair warning (if you haven’t already guessed) that this isn’t going to be a photo post; we’re talking paddling for a moment. The Ugly Box, courtesy of Austin Kayak, is one […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year!  I’m a day late (what else is new), but it’s for a good reason – spending time with family over the holidays.  But here’s hoping that everyone had a warm, cheerful holiday with good friends and family!

Covered bridges in winter

Following my (freezing) visit to West Rutland Marsh, I drove out to Proctor and through the old town, past the buildings where I worked summers while in high school and college, and on out the back roads to the Gorham Bridge, one of several remarkable wooden covered bridges in the area. Gorham Bridge has always […]

West Rutland Marsh in winter

  I’ve shared my visits to West Rutland Marsh over the past few years and talked about how wonderful this location is, so unlike any other place I’ve found, with it’s boardwalk out into the marsh itself providing a unique and intimate access to an environment that is almost impossible to reach otherwise.  Even in […]

In the snow

Although my visit to Kent Pond began under an overcast sky, it deteriorated to snow within an hour.  Having tromped through the snow by the boat launch, over the river (creek) and through the woods, I had returned to the Jeep and took a ride around behind the pond, and ended up coming back over the […]

Kent Pond in winter

I drove to Vermont for Thanksgiving this year, timing it just right so that I spent the first four hours of my evening journey covering 2.5 hours worth of highway in the midst of a heavy snowstorm.  Fun times!  (Eventually I gave up and finished the journey the next morning, which was definitely a smart […]

Simple Clicks – Hickory Run in winter

A few from this past winter – early February to be exact.  I drove down to Hickory Run State Park with the idea that the various creeks, or “runs” as they’re called down there, would be particularly scenic amid the ice and snow.  I trudged through quite a bit of deep snow to reach these […]
