This weekend, I kayaked in the most secluded place I’ve ever been. I’d been craving some solitude and I found it at a little-used state recreation area. I saw no evidence of anyone else for two of my three hours on the water! I had previously only been swimming there, so I had no idea how big the lake was.
As you can see from the map, there are several distinct areas of the lake, so rounding each bend brought new delight. The wildlife viewing was fantastic and the roar of the cicadas and whooping of water fowl underscored the serenity.
I can’t wait to see this place in the autumn.
