It was a great day to paddle on the Swift Rive! We went downstream to the Bondsville dam from the parking area on Cold Spring Road in Belchertown. Some of the group went upstream for a ways where the stream narrowed and current increased. it was a beautiful morning, and many thanks to Lucas and Chris for leading the trip! We saw lots of ducks, several Canada geese, and a frog who played at being a statue, even when we were really close.
