Since the rivers were high and not recommended in the summer of 2018, we paddled some lakes including Devils Lake, an iconic park in the state of Wisconsin.
Took a break on a non-raining day on a not-flooded waterway in the summer of 2018. The Bark river flows through this lake. We got to see how the new damn turned out.
On this day we pushed as much as paddled Red Cedar Lake. Next time, don't wait until July to try it. A fun day. Lots and lots of frogs made us giggle!
The banks are wooded and dotted with spectacular sandstone outcroppings. We would do this trip again, in the Dells boat off season and preferably on a weekday. It would be fun to try paddling upstream from the island into the Coldwater Canyon area.
Our first experience paddling Skokie Lagoons. We have much to learn about the area.
