We put in around 3pm carefully managing the dogs. Since they would be sitting in our laps the whole way, we were pretty interested in them being dry. This was after drying off Buddy when he took off for the water with Mom in tow, down a hill. The guys paddled the four of us and two dogs across the lake in about 15 to 20 minutes. The dogs whined the whole way. We found a nice dead tree to use as a picnic table on the other side. It was then that it was realized that the guys had assumed that I’d put their sandwiches in my dry bag because I’d been nice enough to take care of Mom’s. They refused to share our sandwiches, so Jeremiah got my apple and Joshua fished a Cliff bar out of the bottomless store of his pockets. The lake looked very deep and was crystal clear. There had been a fire, so the west short was covered in dead standing trees. There were some deciduous trees, a brilliant yellow, near the shore. Somebody’s carin was still standing on the peninsula. The dogs were fairly relaxed and calm on the way back. Progress! They’ve been on the river before, in a raft, so this was their first time in a canoe.
|Loved the colors of this day.|
|Like Ronnie says, red canoes look good in the pictures.|
We had dinner with Jeremiah’s clients in Kalispell.
