    What a lot of wonderfull pictures!

    here's mine;
    DSC02156.jpg kanot.jpg

    I got it for free last summer. It is all aluminium and I ditched the slatted floor.
    It has several small leaks, but one large hole in the middle that needs to be welded. No idea about make or age, but it has a distinct wavelike line on bow and stern.
    Original colour was a vivid blue, but it was repainted in a darker green and that was topped by a hopelessly bad paintjob in Swedish red. Stripping the paint is a nightmare.

    Wow, those are some beautiful pictures Hanz. I had a similar opportunity a number of years ago with a fawn that was submerged in a river. This was pre digital, and I didn't find that I had botched all of my exposures from glare off the water. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, I do only pick the good ones to post ;-)

    That was this year's deer, no spots but small. I actually felt the canoe bump it was surprised by the sound, looked down and saw it. Had to stop and grab a couple of photos. I got lucky they worked out.

    Thanks again.

    I lead a Church Canoe trip down the Clarion River in Pa. We were just about to get a campsite close to Arroya Bridge and saw a Bald eagle flying, thinking I had missed it I didn't go for my camera - then it roosted in a tree and the pics are a result of that. The last two were taken from the Island campsite.

    Large Pine tree is the Nesting tree. You can see the other Eagle to the right of the main trunk of the tree.

    Here's one I took Saturday on the Buffalo River in Arkansas from my kayak. This is Buffalo point and the bluff rock on the left side of the river is Skull Rock....looks prettier than it sounds.

    I have been a long time browser of the forum, thought id share some pics finally.

    [​IMG]

    woke up to about 2-4 inches of wet snow, thought I'd better get the last open water lake use of the season.

    This is the answer to 'how cold can you go canoeing/kayaking" from another thread.

    Paddling on the Clarion river, Pennsylvania with a Church group. Right above the Arroya bridge and Eagle flew by and I thought I missed the shot. Then he landed in a tree and before long I realized it was the nesting tree. The last next to last shot reveals that there are actually a pair in the tree and the final shot was actually from our Island campsite. You can make out the tall pine in the center which is the nesting tree.

    I've taken many pictures from my canoe. Beautiful scenery, eagles, moose, but my favorite pics are of my kids. My son and I are lucky to get in at least one canoe trip each year. I'm watching him grow up in the bow of my canoe. This is him in 2009:

    Here is from a Oolagah lake in NE OK.... not the best lake for a canoe, but some great inlets and flooded areas.

    The canoe gets me into just about anywhere i want to go:

    Some more Baker Lake, WA. Sailing and camping out of a 15ft Phil Bolger Pea Pod, a very rugged little truck of a boat, more like a lifeboat. Designed for rowing, but sails reasonably well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Beautiful Diablo Lake, WA. That bridge up there is US 20, the North Cascades Hi-way. That's about 600 ft above the fjiord. It closes in winter.
    [​IMG]

    BELOW:
    Not from my canoe, but , rather a webshot of Diablo. The little bridge in the distance is US 20. Just beyond is the campground where the launch is. Paddle towards the middle of the pic and turn right into the fjiord at the left of the pic, where it disappears behind the mountain. Follow that til you reach the dock at the dam. Did I mention Austria?

    Diablo Lake, WA. Entering the fjiord-like arm that leads to the foot of the Ross Lake Dam, a three mile paddle to get here, then another two gets you to the dam. This part of the Washiington Cascades very much remionds me of the Austrian Lake District, near Halstatt. I almost broke out in a yodeling fest, but the beer was fwd in the cooler.
    [​IMG]

    More Diablo Lake...at the dock near the dam with my trusty Old Town tripper, propelled today with my home made row kit. My bud Jeff was the tillerman in the stern. From here you can use a special phone to summon a truck that will portage you and your canoes up another 800 ft to Ross Lake, a wild paradise that extends up into Canada, from which the only road exists. There VERY large cats here.

    What is really awesome is the wind that kicks up on Diablo every noon like clockwork. These pics were shot in the morning to avoid it as we headed up lake. Coming back around 2pm, we came upon a lone canoeist in a way-too-big canoe desperately attempting to avoid the cliffs in the last pic. it is 80 ft deep thewre and the waves were at least 2 to 3 ft and steeply breaking. The place waas a washing machine. We tossed him a line and with the power of the row kit, and Jeff adding a paddle from the stern, we pulled him away from probable death in the icy waters. There was no one else around.

    He was inexperienced and had the wrong boat for a solo paddle, so we told him to crawl forward so his boat would naturally point into the wind. Pulling him out into the lake, both boats "hull sailed" almost directly back to the launch, some miles downlake. My boat, an Old Town Tripper 17, took it in stride because it is a white water touring type and loves the chop - although I do not.

    Very cool! It was about forty years ago, when I visited Diablo and Ross lakes. They left a lasting impression on me, but it has never worked out to get back there. Looks like it hasn't changed any there. Someday.....

    Less than two hours away live two million people in the Puget Sound basin from the Canadian border, south through Bellingham, Everett, Seattle, Tacoma and Olyimpia. And, there are plenty in the campgrounds. But, you can get into a canoe and go to places like this and rarely see another human. Most do not stray far from cell service or the beach.

    Salve for the soul.

    Fish-n-Chips,
    While I was a trucker driving the four western states, I found California to be one of the most topographically diverse and beautiful places I've ever seen, and I've been to Austria, which is unspeakably breathtaking.

    Yes, it is amazing how it is a short drive to the ocean, mountains, desert and plains. So much to offer if you can get over the politics, government waste, and how expensive it is! LOL
