PADDLE — Lower Niagara from Lewiston to Youngstown — 9/7/19

Eight hearty paddlers showed up on this beautiful morning. There was a road race on the river road so the car-spotting was done via the Robert Moses expressway. The water was relatively flat with just a few motorboats to contend with and the trip went very quickly with a 6 mph current pushing us all the way. The most hazardous part was getting out of the boats on the very slippery concrete ramp at the Youngstown Boat Harbor.

After loading the boats and equipment, we drove back to Youngstown and walked around the Youngstown Peach Festival We were happy to have had another chance to paddle with friends old new.
