Paddling on Red Creek

Yesterday afternoon I went on a kayak paddle with a group from the Adirondack Mountain Club. It was the perfect day for a paddle - warm and sunny and just enough breeze to keep the bugs away. We started on the Genesee River, made a turn into the Erie Canal and then another quick turn into Red Creek. Along the way we watched a heron pluck a large fish out of the water and then swallow it whole. . . gulp! Red Creek makes a nice destination for a paddle with its lush trees and foliage. With the sun streaming through the leaves, it was a pretty sight. We paddled there for about an hour until the creek narrowed down and became too shallow even for kayaks.
