    Default No water

    I came across a couple of pictures of duck lake at the portage (slough side) when the wind blew the water away. This is for those that have never seen it like that. For those of us that have, we don't want to see it again. IMGP2950.jpgIMGP2951.jpg

    I remember that day. Had to anchor my boat just past the island and walk back to camp... But man, did we kill some birds that morning. Was amazing how fast it filled back up when the wind died down later that night. Pretty crazy weather experience.

    I guessed it to be around 70 mph (yes I'll been in heavy winds enough to know) And if you think the lake looked bad you should of seen my camp. Sorry I didn't get pictures of that it blew away. LOL

    I don't doubt 70 mph at all, to move that much water it had to be extreme and then some!

    Bob, when I get back to AK, I'll bring the Arctic Oven. No worries about blowing away with that tent.

    The Circus Tent was in pieces halfway to Julie's. The rest went off to see the Wizard!
