Video of M Krawiec's Zoar Valley Kayak Trip during the 2014 Memorial Day Weekend.

You can see the Mr. Krawiec and friends take on water multiple times, as they don't have water skirts on their kayaks, and from time to time you can see groups of whitewater rafts. It looked like a great time on the water.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.
