Since the Two Hour Tuesdays on Eagle Creek are such a hit we will alternate with the same thing on Geist Reservoir on the northeast side of Indy. Try to arrive at the park around 6:30pm so we can launch at 7:00pm. We will launch from Geist Park which has free admission. Where we launch we will be able to paddle up Fall Creek a short distance or out onto the lake. The eastern end of the lake is a no-wake zone so we can have safe paddling. This has a lot of nice wildlife to view, everything from eagles to ducks to geese and even several swans. We can also venture into the other part of the lake if you want to experience wave action from speedboat wakes.
We will paddle around for two hours. Afterwards we will find a local restaurant for dinner.
Here is the Google Maps link for the park: http://goo.gl/maps/WuG2u
Suggested items to bring: Wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor.
For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.
Trip Difficulty: Easy
