Kayaking: Fish Creek

This being the only day with decent weather predicted this weekend, I put in at the boat launch at Saratoga Lake. They apparently stopped charging when a bus hit the toll booth at the entrance, but it looks like they're setting up a new ticket machine for collecting payment. A lady from adirondack environmental conservation greeted me, asked me where my kayak has been recently, and encouraged me to hose it off when I'm done.

I wasn't sure where I was going to go. I had already done a loop of the lake, so I headed down the creek, thinking I might head out on the lake if I get back with enough energy left. It wasn't until I had made good distance that I realized just how strong the current was getting. I charged on until I got to the dam, turned around, and then found that it was about twice as hard to go back in the other direction. Needless to say, I got back and headed home, adequately tired.
