Beaver River (Beaverton)

Words do NOT fail me.

It was a good plan, brilliantly executed.

How was I to know that the weir is no more?

Itís an 80-minute easy drive from Finch Subway Station to Elizabeth street in Beaverton.

According to Google Earth, the weir in the heart of town makes a lake, from which we will paddle upstream.

But the sluice gates are gone; there is no lake; the Beaver River rushes across a shallow bed of schistose-like rock.

The launch spot doesnít look so good, from what we can see of it, either. It is, of course twenty feet higher than the water surface. Now!

Donít go there!
