Guess what I’ll be doing this holiday break (besides spending glorious time with my family and eating way too much)? This image is from a Thanksgiving trip to a friend’s cabin in North Carolina. The glistening on the boat is ice; we paddled a beautiful, narrow gorge that fed this lake, with temperatures barely breaking into the 40s. For a coastal paddler who’s used to balmy water and humid air, it was wonderful.
I wish you and your family all the best this holiday season, and great things in the new year.
