Fun Friday: Organizational Tip

Fun Friday: Two Heads Are Better Than One

  Immediately after launching the kayak into the early morning fog, this pair of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) began honking at me. At first glance, it appeared as if a 2-headed goose was swimming around in the fog!

Beautiful Blast Off

Last Friday morning, I was able to take my first kayak trip of 2012. The main thing I saw was a rather large group of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis). I arrived at the area about 35 minutes before sunrise, quickly unloaded the kayak and began getting into place as the colors were starting to develop […]
