Steve Piragis took the new Canak out again and put in at the public landing on Burntside Lake near Camp Van Vac. The West side of Burntside Lake was frozen over with skim ice. As he paddled the lake he captured some fantastic photos of Cabin 11 and the ice covered shoreline. The water is cold, but not cold enough to walk on yet!
It really is refreshing to be out in late November and get a look at the snow on the trees from the water's perspective. It is a late season chance to paddle that one shouldn't pass up, providing, you wear a life jacket and warm clothing and tell people where you are headed.
