15th Kayak Outing - 31 Mile Lake

Perfection rarely happens, when it does you try to enjoy every minute of it while it lasts. Thankfully I took the Friday off from work and headed up to 31 Mile Lake for an overnight camping trip at the peak of the Fall colours.

The conditions were unbelievable! In 40+ years in the area, rarely do we get conditions that are so calm (no wind, no waves, no wake) for such an extended period of time. The pictures speak for themselves, it was like kayaking on a mirror all day long. The "effort" factor was low while the "wow" factor was high, you could hardly ask for more.

Just before heading out onto the lake, one of the "locals" suggested we head out to campsite #15, apparently one of the better sites, including a sandy beach. We didn't regret that advice one bit, turned out to be an exceptionally pleasant site.

A quick paddle at the end of the day, before preparing supper & packing it in for the night. As you can see from the picture, the lake was just as calm as it was earlier in the day.
