Monday - who gives a rats " * "

Picture is of the lock system on the Yahara River. The W.K.C.R. will be holding their up-coming season opener March 10th, 2007

A blast in the Sea Wind heading up the Yahara after a day of paddle sailing on Lake Menona in December

What a day -
I still can't get over how beautiful yesterday's paddle was on Lake Columbia. Three hours of skirting the shoreline, pretty much sheltered from the elements. A goofy little lake with an industrial feel (power plant looming over you), but with the ice encrusted shoreline, blue sky and the warmth of the sun on your face. it was just too cool for a February paddle.

You can get around it in about hour and a half. Not very big, but to paddle in single digit temps. in bathwater is definitely an experience to be had. You get that Yellowstone National Park feel, if you have a very active imagination. I saw rainbows white elephants and pigs that could fly... :-)

A good scare is worth more than good advice. - Horace
