Please Note!

I previously wrote here that admission is free for my upcoming slide presentation of "Last Wild Tigers of India" on Monday, Nov. 11 at 1:15 p.m. Location: Phelps Mansion Museum, Court St., Binghamton.
That is incorrect. A $5 admission fee benefits the museum.

On the Water in November

November's coldest days are out, but its warm ones offer comfortable paddling.

Low sunlight is a constant on late fall outings. Here it shines on one of my favorite river riffles.

Dead calm on a river pool offers the perfect chance to focus on riverbank birds.

I never tire - no matter the season - of paddling past a stately black willow like this.

On even the nicest days in November, you'll probably have the water to yourself.

American Beech leaves - some of the last to hang onto trees in the fall.

Where I live in Central New York, November's early days still offer glimpses of colorful foliage.
