We have had an amazing stretch of beautiful weather.
I can't image that white water enthusiasts could have asked for a nicer day for the
Ball Mountain Dam release this Fall.
Beginning at the Ball Mountain Dam, the West River enjoys a day of Class II and Class III white water.
All is calm on this side of the dam (you can also see the ski slopes at Stratton right behind the tower)
It's this side of the dam that draws rafters from all over the region.
trudging up and over the dam -
yeah, that was the only part that didn't look like too much fun.
I got a kick out of this enthusiastic rafter who shouted a big
"woo hoo" to me while I stood on a bridge taking photos.
We were having a great day hiking through Jamaica State Park and watching all the activity,
but I'm thinking these rafters were having a blast!
How about you - would you rather join the fun in the water?
