Paddling trip on Marshfield Reservoir

Would anyone show up? You always wonder when you schedule a late-season paddle months in advance, but we need not have worried. Five intrepid and warmly-dressed section members joined us on Marshfield Reservoir. The surrounding hills, including Hooker Mountain, were still dressed in fall colors, which reflected beautifully in the watery mirror. The brooks that feed the reservoir were full and noisy after the recent rain. And a few sprinkles during the paddle bothered no one. We were alone on the water, of course, except for two beavers and several loons.
