White Water Most people were staying away from the furious Central Vermont rivers this month, but kayaker, Michael McDonnell of Tunbridge made a full day of it on Monday the 11th.
Starting on the Williamstown Road in Washington, he put into the First Branch of the White River at 9:45 a.m. For 3.5 hours, he kayaked the entire length of the First Branch, entering the main stem of the White at the South Royalton rapids. Then he followed the White all the way to Lyman Point Park in White River Junction, where it meets the Connecticut. He pulled his boat out of the water at 4:45 p.m.
