Go With The Flow: It's A PADDLE Day

     I can't fight the rain and mid-forties temperatures.My pond is beyond full. The snowboard gear in a pile looks like the last thing I want to wear. It feels like a the first good day to hit the rivers. The secret is out that Garrett County is a premiere Whitewater destination. Deep Creek Lake is discharged into the Youghiogheny, picking up the water levels in the dry times. Deep Creek Hydro will let you know the release schedule. On days like this Garrett County Whitewater Rivers are all open. My favorite site to check on levels and find new areas to explore is the American Whitewater site. It is a true wonder of nature that what looks like a trickle most of the year turns into a white knuckle run on days like today. Of course who could forget that Garrett County is also home to ASCI  'The Worlds ONLY Mountaintop Whitewater Course'  Below is some footage of the Savage River and Swallow Falls. Please check out my Real Estate website if you are interested in whitewater properties.
