By that time the winds had increased and it took a lot of effort to get back. It is a good thing I'm such a strong paddler, or I'd still be out there battling the waves.
But it was interesting to be on a reservoir with banks exposed all around. It was very different from anyplace else we have paddled in the Adirondacks. These photos were taken in the protected narrow part of the lake so the waves are not apparent. In the wind and waves there was no way I could stop long enough to take a picture.
