Hartford's Park River During A Blizzard

The Park River has long vexed Sad City Hartford. From an initial attempt to Urban Kayak the length of the river falling short, to further attempts being thwarted by low water levels and men defecating in the woods,  the Hog River has become a Moby Dick to the Sad City vessel.

With winter here, there is nothing us to do except wait. We visited a couple months ago to photograph a portion we hadn't reach by kayak. Having to see the river nearly everyday is particularly vexing and occasionally we take pictures. After the jump are some from last weeks blizzard.
