  • Date traveled – August 29, 2014
  • length of trip – 1 mile
  • weather – slight overcast, strong breeze
  • Time on the water- 30 minutes

I was out exploring for a place to let in my kayak.  I tried the Isinglass  river but the water level was too low.  I tried a few small lakes close by.  All was unsuccessful.  So I explored.  I found a road where the map showed where there was no road.  I did find a launch that the map showed was in the middle of the woods at the end of a road that allows only one car moving down the road at one time unless one of the car pulled off to the side of the road.    The road was about a mile long.

When I got to the end I saw a small pond with hikers and people on a nearby rock having lunch.  There was not a single house on the pond.  On the other side of the pond was people doing rock climbing.  I put the kayak in the water after carrying it only 50 feet.

The water looked clear and felt warm.  I took the kayak around the lake.  It was short but one of the nicer excursions in the kayak.  When I got back it was nice.  I asked local people people if there was fishing and they said there was some fly fishing.  It was a great time in the wilderness.
