Report from John’s Brook

September 29, 2011
By Henrietta Jordan

Fifty years ago, a friend and I spent a splendid August afternoon boulder-hopping down John's Brook. We started just beyond the old trestle bridge about a mile from the brook's confluence with the AuSable River and carefully worked our way over the great gray rocks and the small pools and eddies, daring each other to cross the rushing waters of the main stem of the stream. Although I was a lot more agile then than now, this was hard work for a pudgy 9-year-old in tread-worn red sneakers, and it was with a great sense of accomplishment that we climbed out of the brook bed at the Route 73 bridge in Keene Valley.
