    Playin Hooky,,,,pic heavy

    Its been tough to get out as much as i'd like this summer. I've been busy with a project and have winter as a deadline. I'm almost done but couldn't pass up any more good weather . Rain in the forecast so yesterday i played hooky and went paddling.

    View from launch


    Out on the lake ,,another gorgeous day






    Reaching the other side of the lake i decided to do a north loop and see some shoreline i hadn't seen before,,,good choice.




    old barge, beached .


    continued up the lake


    Found a good lunch spot


    The view back across the lake. For reference most of the mnts are between 6500-7500'


    BB doing what it does best. I was glad i brought an extra fleece as having lunch in the shade was cold,,,but eating good food and looking at the scenery,,its ok


    continuing up the lake it gets more interesting.








    continued up the lake.




    Its starting to get late ,,only about an hr of sun left so decided to start heading across the lake and then south to the launch.


    back out on the lake.


    reach the other side and getting ready to head south after some relief,,lol.


    Back at launch and the suns low in the sky. Another great day of hooky.

    I look forward to your pictures and trip report. Great looking pictures.

    What was that on the rock face? Native American painting? That looked cool.
