    Paddling at Last

    Well it has been an odd year weather wise around here. The spring and early summer was cold and rainy and then the beginning of july brought almost triple digit temps/ 37,38C. After that truck troubles and back troubles and all of a sudden its the end of August. Good news is i got out a few days ago. Hadn't been out for almost a year and man did i notice it. I'm glad i decided to take an easy day instead of the bigger loops i usually do. As it was i was absolutely beat at the end of the day and still sore, BUT it was great to get out. Here's a bunch of pic's of the outing.

    On my way up to the middle lake launch. View of the Even's Creek Valley, Valhalla Prov. Park.

    Finally on the lake. Some of these pic's will be familiar to some of the old crowd as i've done this trip numerous times but i know Brucie wants to see some mountain lake pics.

    With the lake low at this time of year there are plenty of small beaches to hang out and camp.

    My destination for lunch, Bannock Point. Quite a popular spot sometimes but pretty quiet today,,(-:

    Perfect spot for a hammock with a fire ring right next to me.

    Heading back home i stop at a viewpoint for a pic of the Nemo Valley.

    It was great to get out. September is usually a great month to paddle as things on the lake quieten right down and if the sun's shining i hope to get more paddling in.
    Thanks for looking

    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Those photos look fake, or like drawings, or something out of a video game, or something. You live in an amazingly fake looking, unreal place, mbiraman! I’d like to paddle there too some day! Almost a year with no outings is too long. More outings for you from now on!

    I know, as the summer was going by i was getting restless to get on the water. I've been out lots on the trail doing bushcraft stuff, just haven't written much about it but i know that on the water produces some juicy pics. I'm hoping to get out next week.
