After carrying down the steep hill, I paddled upstream past the Tupper Mill into the Gorge. This section of the river can be shallow, can have current, or both. This time it had both. I lined past the island below the confluence with the Branch River.
There wasn't much water flowing though the Gorge itself. The color was OK, but it is still probably a week away from peak color. It has been a weird year for foliage – every thing seems later than usual.
Anyway - few pictures here:
