Sunrise and Sunset Paddling with WSBS Thunderbolt Kayak

April 16, 2014 – 6:43 pm |

I started springtime paddling season with WSBS Thunderbolt kayak, the only boat in my paddling fleet I can reach 8 mph with (or at least try). There are four pictures below from the same lake (Beaver Pond in Arapaho Bend Natural Area) from paddling sessions starting before sunrise and in late afternoon.
