I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.
Kayaking Upper Salmon River. What I do to get some of these pictures.
Kayaking the Upper Salmon River. This falls is called Stern Banger. It is a popular lunch spot for paddlers too. The rocks on the Upper Salmon River ( Beaver Lake and north) are metavolcanic and metasediments meaning volcanic and sedimentary rocks that have been substantially changed by heat-pressure and time. They are 1.28 billion years old. They slope upwards to the west side of the river for many km..
Buttermilk Falls entering the Salmon River. A challenging run. The Salmon River was formed by a fault line running most of the length of the river, about 50 km.. The sharp bend in the falls here, marks the fault line along what is known as the Glen Salmon.
Spring runoff on Upper Salmon River
Always a challenge here.
Peak spring run off on Upper Salmon River. Can you find the paddler?
Beavers cut a lot of trees here. That is very hard maple wood. The many fallen trees make paddling Gull Creek to Sheffield Lake and then the Upper Salmon River very difficult.
Kayaking the Upper Salmon River. There were big Atlantic Salmon runs here up to 1850 because the clean water and deep gravel beds for spawning. Silt from logging, and dams endend it very fast. Pike and Lake Trout were very abundant too.
Lower Salmon River. Get ready, get set, goooo...... The dam is the Breeze dam, rebuilt in 1982 for recreation and ice control

Spring time on the Salmon River.
Sheffield Lake is a beautiful lake, but there is no good public access. There was regularly scheduled service by steam boat up Sheffield Lake starting at Gull Creek, up the Salmon River to Horse Shoe Lake between 1850 and 1865 because the roads were very poor, and there were no railways yet.
Upper Salmon River, March 7 2009
Puzzle Lake, near Tamworth. This is one of the head waters of the Salmon River through Gull Creek. This pink granite forms a band about 3 km. wide running in a NE-SW direction and is 1.24 billion years old. This is one of several spectular fault lines found in this area.
Salmon River at Shannonville Ontario. Dams like this encourage the formation of surface ice, preventing frazil ice from building up on the bottom which can cause severe flooding.
Spring time water fall
Beaver Creek in spring run off. There is only one way to get these pictures, you have to paddle here.
Upper Salmon River, below Sheffield Lake
Gull Creek is blocked by several beaver dams and many fallen trees cut by beavers.
