Despite the fact that I grew up along the Passaic (in North Arlington, N.J.) I never really explored the river as a kid. In fact, I was well into middle age by the time I took my first boat trip on the Passaic. But these days, plenty of people are exploring the Passaic – and they’re recording their adventures. Here’s two very different Passaic River video diaries that caught my eye:
This first one, from Igindoff, shows his October 2009 paddle from Lord Stirling Bridge upstream into the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. There are more paddle videos on Igindoff’s YouTube page.
This next video, courtesy of Wheeler Antabanez, is kinda trippy. If you like it, here’s where to find more of Wheeler’s work.
