Housatonic River: Division Street to Bridge Street Professional Review and Guide

"It is sometimes difficult to admire the scenery while floating down quickwater, but if you do glance about you will see tall sycamore and cottonwood trees clustered along the shore. The sycamore trees have a distinctive patchwork bark with blotches of white alternating with tan.

Cottonwoods are massive trees with huge trunks and branches. They’re not terribly attractive but the thick, rather stubby branches are easy to recognize even at a distance. The river winds through very picturesque country dominated by wide farm fields and occasional distant views of rounded mountains. Short stretches of rapids alternate with equally short areas of quickwater and a few small backwaters to stop and rest if you wish. If you look around, you should find signs of beaver and muskrat as well as lots of different songbirds and water birds."
