Part 4 of the story of my ill-advised whitewater kayaking trip down the Penobscot river picks up with me looking like a drowned rat at the base of Big Ambejackmockamus Falls (class IV). The first three parts of the story can be found at:
- Real Kayakers Wear Skirts! Part 1: The Calm Before the Storm
- Real Kayakers Wear Skirts! Part 2: In Over My Head.
- Real Kayakers Wear Skirts! Part 3: Taking the Plunge.
“Are you ok?” the kayaker on the rocky outcropping above me shouted, noticing me for the first time. I looked up, catching a glimpse of the tip of my kayak churning around in the whirlpool right behind her.
