A Little Whitewater

Canoeists negotiate the small dam and whitewater section of the Rocky River in the park behind downtown. They made it through but the next group got hung up on the rocks! This is just past where a race channel was diverted from the Rocky. The race goes under an old power house that now houses a coffee bar. The power it would have provided is no longer used, but boats cannot pass under the building. The race and the river channel go under Michigan Ave and join the St. Joseph River in Scidmore Park.
