Wood/Pawcatuck - Alton to Bradford - November 3, 2013

Saturday was sunny and warm.  Sunday was cloudy and cool.  Guess which day I got to go paddling.

After a slight mix up at the put-in location, we met at the Alton Dam around 10:15.  I was afraid I’d be doing this trip alone, but we ended up with four boats – me, Jim, Eric C. and Donna.  We put in below the Alton Dam and headed downstream.  It was cloudy and a little cool, but still nice.

On the Wood River below the Alton Dam the river twists and turns though a pretty woodland.  Things open up when the Wood River joins the Pawcatuck about a mile downstream.  We ran the broken dam on the right, and stopped for a quick snack at the Burlingame Canoe Campsites before heading down to Bradford.  It was another nice day.
