an open shot of the monocacy

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

These shots of the Monocay were taken during a paddle between Devilbiss river access point and the route 355 river access point. The trip took place on March 11, 2012. The day was radiant, and promised a very unusual mid 60's day with out a single cloud in the sky.

The monocacy flows at a good clip, with a few ocasional ripples class I, perhaps on a higher level up to II. None of them were hard at all. The monocacy has a few slack pools here and there, where you have to do most of the paddle. For reference we took about 5 1/2 miles to cover 18 miles.

the ride was not technical at all, and this segment of the river could be paddle by just about anyone, as all the rapids are an easy class I.
