We paddled from the old Calderwood community up stream to the powerhouse. Now here is a jewel many people do not see in our area... at the end of the lake, just above the powerhouse the waters from Calderwwod Dam trickle down past some amazing rock formations. If you live in the area, make plans to paddle to see theses rocks. Some of the boulders are as big as cabins while others have been shaped over time into these alluring smooth and pocked formations. Hundreds of pockets contain perfectly round marble-like rocks made from limestone. These holes are generally the size of five gallon buckets and at the bottom of each are these tiny round rocks.
Where the stream flows into the lake, look for the large kinda-sloped area to your right which makes a super place for a picnic. I had 21 of us on it. Guess what...the entire time we paddled with those kids not one spoke about their video games. I was privileged to have a teen in my boat that had NEVER been in a canoe. I was awestruck that I was the one to get to introduce him to the activity. Oh how I hope he grows up and remembers that "song of the paddle."
