Fish Lake — Kayak and Canoe

May 18, 2008

Ten happy boaters enjoyed a glorious day paddling our kayaks and canoes on Fish Lake. (There’s plenty of water right now but the lake does dry up later in the summer.) Daphne James coordinated the Eugene group and we met at my place for coffee and rolls. We portaged past the gate and walked through a bit of snow to get to the lake. It was never more beautiful as we basked in the sun while paddling by snow-covered vistas. We also paddled up fingers of the lake where the promised bald eagle appeared. We also heard the osprey and saw geese and Merganzer ducks. Denise Butler took pictures good enough to be on the cover of National Geographic Magazine. We ate our lunch in our crafts. We were out about four hours and went home relaxed and planning more days on the water.

(Check the schedule for moonlight kayaking/canoeing in July and August.)

We ten included Denise Butler, Laurie Funkhouser, Peter and Kitson Graham, Dick Hildreth, Daphne James, Ellen Sather and Tom Woxell; non-members Caroline Forell and Shelley Smith.
