First Spring Paddle

I started this outing, in my skin-on-frame canoe, from the Hotchkiss Road access to Thousand Acre Swamp, in New Marlborough, Massachusetts.  Picked off a geocache at the suspension bridge seen here, then portaged to Mill Pond, where I put back in to paddle across to the final short portage to East Indies Pond.

Mill Pond, in the19th century, powered a sawmill
