We rolled out of bed early today and got the kayaks out onto the lake. The sun was just coming up; rain (and a very impressive thunderstorm) rolled through last night and left everything shrouded in mist and feeling fresh.
Deer Creek reservoir is chocked full of water, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the water so high. It’s nice to not have to look at the high water mark around the edges of the lake.
I’m glad I wasn’t swimming- in the swamp sections, I can only imagine feeling the underwater growth touch my legs and losing it. The plants were magical from above, with the pretty pink blooms.
Looking toward Midway… I decided to avoid getting attacked by the swans and not try and get any closer than this.
