    The video referred to in the article is here:


    The alders, ferns and other terrestrial vegetation at the waterline indicate that it was taken during typical summer water conditions, not a drought as Mr. Aaron suggests. In drought conditions boats need to be dragged.

    Also shown in the video are at least six sections where blowdown was cut away to make the stream reasonably passable by canoe.

    Both banks and nearly the entire length of Mud Pond Outlet are shown, which should give viewers a good sense of this stream and the types of waterways in New York some would like declared public highways over which property owners have no control.
