Recently, a group of paddlers enjoyed perfect weather for a 6.9 mile paddle down the Osgood River and into Meacham Lake in Franklin County. Bald Eagles and a Blue Heron were sited. The group enjoyed a swim at Thomas Meacham Beach, which was refreshing after the days paddle. The group as led by Geri Ames and Brian Baston, and was sponsored by the Laurentian Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club. Watch for the Chapter's Fall Trips, which will be announced soon. The public is always welcome on chapter trips.
