Slabtown Dam in a Canoe

Yesterday’s thaw got the local whitewater types excited about spring. The Beaver River was up to about as high as it gets all year. This footage is from last year about this time, when I tested out someone else’s canoe over the Slabtown Dam, with Greg Sturch. We will warn you though, if you don’t have the knowledge or the paddling skills, stay out of the river. It’s dangerous this time of year.
