High water

[Yesterday: one hour of rowing]

Having eaten too much pizza on Sunday and Monday, I needed to get some exercise on my diary at MyFitnessPal.com and balance out the calories.  So I took the little rowboat down to the river after work and rowed upstream for about 35-40 minutes and then back downstream, making an hour of steady rowing.

The river is running high with lots of floating foam and junk in the water.  It was calm; no waves except for wakes of a couple of other boats that went by.  This picture is north of the US-82 bridge, facing upstream, northwest.  Around that far corner there is a lock and dam, maybe 1.5 miles upstream.

    Fun! I love rivers but most I’ve been around are too messy to swim in. Which is too bad but I think not as bad as it was a few decades ago. The cleanest was Saco River in New Hampshire where it meandered by fields but soil was sandy and not much chemical runoff. We live on a river but I’d never want to swim in it. And for sure not walk in it as silt is fine as powder and sticks to you.

    The three level place far right. I wonder if this pic will show – a test:
