Every Labor Day weekend, electric companies in the North Country open their reservoirs and kayakers come from around the country to ride the magnificent man-made currents. Also known as Beaver River Fest, this event may be one of the most exciting and fast paced in the Adirondack Park all year. Last year, Scottie, Jackson and I went to witness this extraordinary event and document what we saw. In honor of the pending event this weekend, I am posting some highlights…best of’s, if you will. For more information on the upcoming event, check out the Northeast Paddler’s Message Board here: http://www.npmb.com/cms2/e107_plugins/wrap/wrap.php?10 and scroll down to New York. Happy paddling!
