Some creek boating photos from the Raquette river, NY. The first stage of the 2016 King of New York kayak event took place in Colton NY on the labour day weekend. I was able to capture some of the fun and games as paddlers did warm up laps before the competition, full on paddling here. This river has a few sections that can cause some headaches if you are not on your game. The Tub rapid proved a challenge for more than one paddler.
