Early morning paddle on the Hudson

I launched at 6:00 am on the lower Wappingers creek and paddled up the Hudson until my GPS said 5 mi.  It was a beautiful morning and the river was like a mirror.  The fish were jumping all over and there were no boats except for 3 large barges that went by.

I paddled back but had to wait for a tug that was moving a barge around in front of Trap Rock.  I didn't want to get in his way!  I made it back at about 8:30 and was back home by 8:50 in time for work.  Great way to start the day.   10 mi, 2 hrs 35 min.
