    Paddled my kayak along this stretch of the Bog just 3 days ago. About half way between the falls and the forks, I came upon 3 otters in the river. The traffic noise from rt. 30 is indeed distracting, but once you get away from it, this is a lovely stretch of flat water.

    I just kayaked the lower Bog River. On my way back I saw the ring in the rock. I thought it was an anchor point for logging as well. Thanks for the info. Great story btw
