Post your paddling pictures here! Anything goes as long as it’s related to being on the water.
The kids were dog-paddling. And it IS water related.
My small fleet
This is Elm Lake about 5 or 6 miles up the Kunjamuk River outside Speculator, NY. Paddled with my eldest son back in October
Took this down the sun river to just out side Great falls one time. Buff hide and elk sewn on aspen frame
Some of several canoe experiences over the last 6 or so years. Others are not so tranquil, and conditions demanded my complete attention...
Five Fingers Rapids during a race on the Yukon River.
Another voyageur canoe on another Yukon race (1000 miles) during a passport/customs check at Eagle Alaska.
I think I've posted all of these before, but not in one place.
How about a little beaver dam action in the Boundry Waters
I’m loving these photos!
Luna Lake, Alpine AZ.
Solo portage of a 32 foot cedarstrip voyageur (knupac system demo only, going nowhere)
Solo portage of a Hornbeck carbon/kevlar canoe on a knupac (first steps in a trek crossing the Adirondacks - 185 miles including 62 miles of accumulated portages)
Here's a few more. Most of these have been posted on the forums in other places. I haven't been taking many recently that show any great scenery.
...and, some more....
Upper James River, Virginia
Not mine, but picture myself here (about 45-years ago... maybe).
That's a pretty interesting setup
Discovered on the way to Whitehorse in the Yukon while driving across the Canadian plains. Blue covered canoe on the car and wife about to be eaten (save the canoe!).
Portaging across the Canadian prairie in the City of Portage La Prairie.
Snacks and rough Lake Laberge on the Yukon
Bow navigator's station on the Yukon, a better weather year.
A relatively smoother segment on Lake Laberge, Yukon, another year.
I bought a Field & Stream kayak almost two years ago. I’ve taken it out quite a bit.
My brother and I on an early morning paddle/fish trip last summer:
My kayak is primarily a fishing vessel for me.
Returning from a camping on Little Tybee island in 2017. Tidal currents there are rough!
Is that an Artic Hawk by chance?
My wonderful old Bass Tracker at a nearby lake where gasoline motors are prohibited. It makes a helluva rowboat. Not too fast, but it's sure nice to have a boat I can walk around in and dive off of for swimming and sleep on. The trolling motor on the front makes it a great fishing boat, and can help me get off the lake quickly if the wind comes up.
It's also a great fishing boat on big lakes where I can use the 40 hp motor.
I have a canoe (Wenonah Aurora 16), and I love it too. I've rigged it so I can put oars on it and row. When the wind gets up, or if I have a long ways to go, the oars really show their value. I can put a lot more power into 2 long oars than I can one short paddle. For close to shore work the paddle works better.
