The last laugh's on everyone as canoeists who have made it past Gray Rock-an in famous spot for getting wet-enjoy the spec tacle of others attempting the same tricky stretch. Two canoeists (below) bottom out on a shoal and head for an unplanned dip. Though less hazardous than many other canoeing streams, the Buffalo still offers real dangers to the unskilled and the un wary. Novices are advised to try the lower river in summer before braving the upper reaches in tempestuous spring.
