R is for Rivers
Where would lakes be without rivers? Empty for starters. Life here in the Midwest offers lots of both. Close to the house as well. The Yahara is my first paddling choice. Always upstream to start. To the island in Mud Lake, past the old pioneer bridge and the native fish weir then back downstream. Usually I have the place to myself both ways. Great water. Great paddling. When that's not enough lake Kegonsa looms large. I like sunrise paddling on that surface. Usually smooth, calm, and quiet. Unfortunately water skiers like the same conditions. It's still worth the wake up though.
