It was a bright afternoon as the Mumford rolled over the dam toward its ultimate destination, junction with the Blackstone River.
Fresh water … Tuesday morning at the dam in the middle of town. It’s the Mumford River, flowing peacefully to join the Blackstone just a mile ahead.
Two rivers run through our town. The river in these pictures is the Mumford. It’s a tributary of the Blackstone and runs through the middle of what passes for “downtown.” The Blackstone River runs through Uxbridge too and it’s beautiful, one of the few remaining places where the canal and river run parallel, where you can see the big locks.
I took this batch of pictures a couple of days ago at the dam where Rt. 122 (Main Street) intersects Rt. 16 (a route of many names). Not using my finest camera. This is the little Panasonic ZS19 I keep in my purse. I’m never without a camera even if, as I was on Monday, I’m on my way from the doctor to the grocery store.
It’s the end of autumn. There is still color, but not bright as it was even a few days earlier. Many trees are starting to show bare branches. Autumn’s bright days are drawing to an end. If we are lucky, it will be a while before it snows. If I had a choice, never snow. It could happen. Probably not, but it could.
First, from the street side, reflections of the changing trees and the deep, blue sky.
Then, back up to the ledge for an overview of metropolitan Uxbridge.
