My trip to NH got cancelled on Saturday due to a bomb cyclone that brought high winds and blizzard conditions up north. Fortunately, there was a trip scheduled on the Scantic in CT on Sunday after the storm had passed, so I did that instead.
We ran the 5-mile section that is the course for the Scantic Spring Splash whitewater race. The first half is quickwater/class I, and the second half is class II with three class II+ (maybe III rapids) - Stokers is a 3-foot ledge that needs to be run from the left, Chimney - an “S” turn through some rocky ledges run down the middle , and Staircase - a series of ledges that look like a staircase with a large shoot at the bottom. Everyone made it through fine.
It was cold, but still a nice day to be out on the water. Few pictures here:
