Blue Juniata trip on July 4, 2002!







We had a beautiful trip down the Juniata today. 
 Eric Hughs and family came with me.
We left Howe park at about 10:30 AM. 
The Juniata gauge at Newport was about 3.6 feet.
We stopped for photos and at Poorman’s Spring.
I was completely covered in spring water for a few seconds, lying down of course.
That was COLD!!!!

We then went over Iroquois Falls. 
We paddled some smaller riffles and on down towards Amity Hall.
 
We stopped atKen Shull's house. He showed us the big hovercraft he is building.

 When the Harrisburgers, who are sole owners of the place, sought for some secluded spot where they might erect a lodge and woo the Sylvan Gods, they wisely secured the old homestead at Poorman's Spring, the tract comprising  about sixty acres of timber and cleared land.

"When the Harrisburgers, who are sole owners of the place, sought for some secluded spot where they might erect a lodge and woo the Sylvan Gods, they wisely secured the old homestead at Poorman's Spring, the tract comprising about sixty acres of timber and cleared land."
"The platform on which you stand , in expectation of what may next follow, is elevated about ten feet, and just as you are about descending the steps leading to the foot bridge crossing the canal, you are met by a committee from the popular Fishing Club whose guest for the day you must, and very willingly, concider yourself."
Poorman's Spring along the Juniata River near Iroquois Station of the PRR . . .long a public watering place . . . probably walled up when the canal was built in 1829.
