Gun Lake Safety Training June 18, 2012

A group of us met at Yankee Springs State Park on Gun Lake Monday night to practice wet exits and wet entries in preparation for our July trip to the Les Cheneaux Islands in Lake Huron. Good conditions to practice in with temps in the low 90's and wind gusts to 25 mph. The lake was much rougher than it looks in the pictures- the put in was in a sheltered cove. The warm air and water kept us cool while the waves gave more of a big lake feel to the water.
Much different conditions than most of are used to being river paddlers. It's good to mix it up a little.
