Okay, it is definitely summer. A high of 88 degrees (!!) at the airport. Only a little bit of a breeze. The rivers are still too high and muddy for my taste. Time to get the sea kayaks out of the garage! We headed to Jackson Lake, launched at Spalding Bay and paddled the bay around almost to South Landing. For the first day of paddling this season, that was enough.
We drove north to Jackson Lake Lodge, hoping to see some bear activity (not successful) and in search of a huckleberry milkshake (successful). We topped it off with dinner on the deck at Dornan's. Yay, summer!
