A couple pics of today's paddle, on Kenai Peninsula, AK.
It was windy so I chose two smaller Lakes joined by a very small channel. I found a Moose skeleton on an island, saw Loons, beavers, and King Fishers.
The ice just went out and some of it was piled up on shore.
Saw a black bear yesterday.

I had to work yesterday doing fires, my normal days off are Tuesday and Wednesday.
My new canoe should be waiting for me at the office. A 16 foot Ally folding canoe.

The water looks "refreshing". Let us know how you like the Ally compared to the OT :).

Weird double post.

Boonie,
I just unpacked it and will try it out in a week, I'll keep you informed.
The assembly sounds a little trying until you get used to it.
A pic of it out of the box.

Better than a weird single post ;)

I'm sure putting one of those together takes some practice to get it done quicker. Is that 16-footer designed as a solo?

btw, about how much does it weigh?

The first time I saw this post, I immediately looked at the pics without reading any of the text. I thought, Forest Lake? No way in hell is that Forest Lake! Well, I was thinking of the Forest Lake just north of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, and your Forest Lake is much, much more beautiful!

Funny you mention that, after I posted I got to thinking, I wonder if people will think it is the Forest Lake you just refrenced.
