Kayaking: Stewarts Bridge Reservoir #2

Today being the official unofficial start of summer, I wanted to go for a longer paddle than I have so far this year.

The weather was great, except for predictions of a chance of thunderstorms in Albany. This was forecast all three days this weekend, even though there has hardly been a cloud in the sky. Regardless, I went far enough north that it wouldn't have mattered.

Stewarts Bridge Reservoir is a nice little sectioned off area off the north end of Great Sacandaga Lake. It was about an hour drive for me, punctuated by some nice windy mountain roads. There are dams at either end, and it zigzags back and forth between them. I entered near a public picnic area, which was predictably busy for the Memorial Day weekend. There are probably about a dozen campsites along the water. There are a handful of houses elsewhere on the reservoir, but it is much less developed than anything like Saratoga Lake while still being nice and small.

The biggest problems I ran into were mosquitos and obnoxious jet-skiers. The answer to both seemed to be to keep moving.

I completely succeeded at tiring myself out.
