After work Kayak at Foster lake

  • August 21, 2013 · 5:00 PM

Well lets try this again - Meet - at the public boat ramp just east of Sweet Home on Hwy 20. Spend a few hours exploring the upper reaches of Foster lake or just chill out and float. The lake is pretty quiet on weekdays so should be minimal if any traffic. Bring boating gear and craft of choice - snack & drinks and let the pressures of another hump day float off into the sunset. If you cant make it by 5 - we can flex or figure a way to meet there at a later hour.

    OMG, you guys....I am SO sorry I didn't get to go now!!! I'm so glad you guys had a wonderful time and it was glorious weather. I don't think I mentioned that I joined the hike group months ago, but haven't been able to go to any events yet. So, people are probably wondering "who the heck is she???" HA!

      Good news about the phone. I thought, for not being prepared, you were actually quite prepared! We always have what we need in our cars, right?

    yes fun evening - first time up that arm of the lake. perfect length of trip for the time we had. It was pretty cool coming back out at dusk and watching the fish jump. The moon rose behind the clouds so we missed that but that didn't take away from this trip. thanks everyone.

    What an incredible evening. I never guessed the water would be so magical at dusk. Next we should camp by a lake and kayak at dawn.

    Sorry I won't be there everyone. I have had other commitments to take care of :( I know summer is fast coming to an end, but hope- fully we might have another day or two to do another kayak adventure :)

    I don't own a kayak, but would like to rent one and possibly join Wednesday night. Can anyone suggest a good place to rent and how much it might cost? Thanks!!

      Wish I could help but I am borrowing one. Don't know of a place in Salem - I would call Salem Summit Company - they may have an idea - nice folks there.

      That's okay, Dave. I appreciate the response! Still not sure if I can come, but will let everyone know when I am certain.

    wednsday forecast is for 90 degrees. Almost full moon rising at 8:12 pm - should be pretty cool to be in the middle of the lake for the moonrise.
