We asked Mark and Susan to join us at Squaw Lake, which is just behind Imperial Dam and is a part of the backwaters of the Colorado River system. It has been three weeks since we have had the kayak out, and this would be a perfect place to enjoy it. This was the second time for us to visit this lake. Last November we were there for a week and had a great time. This morning we drove the coach down to the mall to meet them, and because of the large parking lots available, a place to leave the cars for the day. What a great day for kayaking…85 degrees, hardly anyone on the water, and having our choice of parking locations at waters edge. Mark and Susan took the first turn on the water while Louise and I got the barbeque all set up for the wiener roast. There is this one route that will wind you through the tall reeds and tall rock cliffs, and then empty you into another lake. From there you will find another trail through the reeds that will take you out to the Colorado River. During this time of year, the river is running high with a lot of current, so when you make it to the river you receive a free ride back “home” at a real good pace. When Mark and Susan returned, Louise and I donned the life jackets and took our turn on the water. We didn’t see any long horned sheep this time, but we did see a lot of very large bass jumping…they must have known that I didn’t have my fishing pole… After getting back we immediately got the barbeque fired up, the brocks cooked and ate, and then had the rest of the afternoon to just set back with a couple of cold beers and have a great visit with family (and friends). Well it was time to head out. We all climbed into the coach, went back to the mall, and then off to dinner and a nights stay (in the parking lot) at Applebee’s.
