Kayaking

I love kayaking. Its so fun, being out on the water alone. And its a versitile form of play. You can take it on anything from rivers to lakes, down rapids or just floating carelessly along like is pictured. Photo was taken off Little Fan, Collowash River.

What a serene scene! I have always wanted to learn to kayak but I'm terrified of flipping over or getting my camera wet. I almost tried it on Lake Quinault, a very calm body of water, but I chickened out. You could rent canoes from the Lodge there.

I'm with you, kayaking is a blast and affords the opportunity to see many critters and parts of nature not usually seen. Enjoy!

I am not a water person, probably because I was a country girl and no water around to swim in, therefore, I never learned to swim. But, I must admit it sure looks like fun.

Although I have not kayaked much in my life, I know that I do love it and sometimes wish it was easier to pursue here. Beautiful site to kayak in!

Beautiful photo. Oregon is a wonderful place, I know.
I've never kayaked solo, but I had great fun being the passenger in a two-person kayak in Costa Rica a few years ago.

Beautiful! My daughter wants to kayak but hasn't started yet, even though I try to encourage her - I think she'd love it!

Great contribution to K-day! Kayaking is fantastic because it can take you to so many otherwise inaccessible places.

My youngest son's favorite occupation in Idaho! Come to think of it, I have a great photo of him doing it, that I could have used for 'K' day.
