Got in a little paddle time on a windy day

This quick trip was from a couple weekends ago.  I had really enjoyed this lake in the past but not long ago a path/road went in to allow people to drive to the back of the lake.  So you know what that means....more people, and more TRASH!  It was pretty disappointing to be honest.  I'm not sure if I'll go back or not as I only picture it getting worse as we come into summer.  What a shame.

Well onto the pics.  Here's take out

making some headway

did a little fishing but the recent rain and wind had the water pretty murky so no luck with the fish.

pulled over to rest a bit, dad was getting whipped by the wind on this day

this spot use to be a nice secluded spot that no one ever got to.  Not anymore.

 I went to a couple other spots and the same thing were there as well.  No more human-less spots on the lake

All in all it was nice to get out for some paddle time with my little girl.  The road access and litter was not what I wanted to find at all but I guess I shouldn't be surprised and perhaps should lower my expectations with today's society.

thanks for looking


  1. Get that gal a paddle! Initially she may actually slow you down but the payoff will be worth it.

    1. That's not a bad idea at all. I know they make smaller ones now too. Thanks for the comment.

  2. Nice outing! Too bad about the trash. :(
