|So this spring break I headed up Vermont into Canada to do some kayaking. |
For the first time ever I did not get my vehicle completely searched.
Apparently they have a stonehenge too!
|Some strange random house with a witch.|
|As would have it, all I got was freezing rain and snow.|
|Lots of it.|
|So I dropped down into New Hampshire. Here I am at 3rd Conn Lake about a mile from the border. There was only a few feet from shore that was not frozen..somehow I did not think it would be worth it to put in here.|
|I stopped in on some cabins a few miles south. This is the one I chose for the week. Spruce Cone Cabins.|
|The next day I went to 2nd Conn Lake. now this was do-able. The first thing I saw as I was unloading my gear was a moose. I followed it into the woods, but all I saw was tracks.|
|It was a great serene paddle.|
|I was eventually restricted due to ice. After following the ice edge and admitting defeat, I just chilled. Until it began to hail...then rain. A cold, freezing rain that told me the day's paddle was over.|
|I floated on Midway Pond until dusk hoping that a moose would come take a drink before turning in for the night.|
|The next day I went to 1st Conn Pond. I was also limited to how much i could paddle, but the little island and dozens of geese, and site of a loon, made it very pleasurable. And the fact that there was no rain.|
|Thursday was dedicated to Lake Francis. Or is it Francis Lake? This was a large lake with plenty of non-frozen water.|
|This is me after paddling back to the coast line to get away from the wind.|
Below is one of four covered bridges I saw on this trip.
|On Friday I headed over route 26 and then 16-another moose hunt. I saw this airport and thought it was a goof.|
I traveled forever on some dirt road looking for kayak places. I never got close enough to one to launch.
|I never did find a pond, but I did see lots of these. So although i put 10 years on my jeep and almost got stuck several times, this trip was worth it.|
|On the way back to the cabin, I saw this sign near a notch through the mountains, and decided to follow the trail.|
|I saw this mountain, and decided to conquer it.|
|scary, shale, windy, adrenaline, tired, exciting|
|One last stop before I head to cabin-Beaver Brook Falls.|
