Fog and Sun: Kayaking Francis E. Walter Reservoir


A few weeks ago I visited this reservoir and kayaked the south arm, today I kayaked the north arm. You wouldn’t think that they would differ much, but the fact is they are like two different worlds. The south area is surrounded by forest and fields, the north is lined with rocky cliffs and the skeletons of a drowned forest. (more below video)

The reservoir is used to regulate the water flow of the Lehigh River, and since this has been a relatively wet year there hasn’t been any significant draw down as of yet. Or there has and it’s refilled. Either way, it makes for great kayaking, especially when there is only light wind like today.

Click here for the video from a few weeks ago to see the difference in the two sections.
