Lookout Creek Kayaking Trip

The kayak had her maiden voyage Saturday on the Lookout Creek kayaking trip. The horse was a bit jealous, but he got a lot of attention Sunday to make up for it.

The weather was perfect, with the exception of a little more than ideal wind. The view was awesome because the creek runs along the foot of Lookout Mountain. This creek has a lot of historical significance. Eighteen kayakers showed up for the paddle that ended with a late lunch at Cracker Barrel; everyone seemed to enjoy the trip.

The new kayak performed well and I liked the feel and comfort. It handled well through all the technical aspects of the creek. There were a lot of downed trees in the water to go over, under, and around. We had one tree to go under that was so low I had to get in the floor, fold down the seat, lean back, and push through with my hands. It was a lot of fun and the obstacles kept it very interesting.
