A Few More Allegheny River Pictures
From my January trip (for which I cleverly took a vacation day, creating a 3-day weekend without the 3-day weekend "Greyhound Gets Rabies, Bites" experience). We had freakishly lovely weather & we were not the only boaters out there.
By the time I returned in February, things were back to normal. TQ told me not to bother bringing the drysuit, the river was a bit on the chunky side for paddling. We did take a walk in the same park where we launched, and it looked pretty clear there - but then we drove along the river to another park where there's a little cascade that we thought would make for a nice snow hike with the dogs (it did), and I swear we only drove about a quarter of a mile along a bend in the river, and around that bend, the river was bank to bank ice floes.
