Tonight we are at the north end of Mud Lake. After paddling 2 days on big open water, we will enter an actual river tomorrow. We were blessed the last two days to have relatively calm winds so we didn’t have to fight the wind in our unconditioned physical state. The lake shores are hard to follow because everything is flooded. Even the islands that we would normally use as landmarks are underwater. Maybe just a tree top sticking up here or there. Tonight we are squatting on some farmer’s mowed lake access because we can find nowhere to camp that is not swampy. We took the canoe out into the lake after setting up camp to go swimming. Jumping out of and crawling back into the canoe was not a problem. Yay!
