Tariffville Gorge

Tariffville Gorge is about 15 minutes north of Hartford, CT. There is one spot on the river that kayakers gather on a regular basis to practice and hone their skills. T'ville's water level was pretty low this weekend which made the wave a little sticky - once I was in it was hard to get out, unless the wave threw me out. It doesn't take long to burn off your energy.
Jen was the skilled photographer on this trip.
