I cannot express how excited I am to travel with the current despite the boney conditions that necessitated my continued in and out to get over rocks and other low spots in the river. This is the Nulhegan. The watershed is very different than the muddy and sediment filled Clyde River. The river bottom is sandy in places and the topography is steeper. At the confluence with the Connecticut River I was leaving VT and entering NH.
My brilliant partner, Allie had been following my progress comparing it with her work schedule and had planned to have that evening off if I was available. We agreed to meet at a site downriver and she drove up from Massachusetts to spend the day and go into town. This was a most welcome experience especially after so many days of slogging upriver. I would highly recommend visits from loved ones if you’re in need or a morale boost.
