The Mill River ends in Hulburt’s Pond, at a spot near its confluence with the Manahan, where it emptied in the 17th century.  During springtime freshet, the Connecticut and Mill rivers flow into their floodplains, and then you can paddle along the broadening Mill River from Mass Audubon’s Arcadia Sanctury in Easthampton to South Street in Northampton.

Janine Norton, a denizen of the river’s end, has been paddling that section of the Mill River for some 10 years.  She’s there whenever water levels allow passage through the forest of red and silver maples, elms, boxelders, and ash.  Since she’s a professional photographer (http://www.janinenorton.com/), she is rarely without a camera or two.

Janine is the project leader for the End of the River photo album.  She will choose the most interesting photos for display on this site as we build a photo essay for this extraordinary reach of the river.  Her own photos are below.  To see them on the full screen, click on the image, then click once more to maximum size.
