Lake paddling excitement
Well, it was actually right after we got off the lake that the lightning storm started. So technically, the lake paddle in itself was quite peaceful. Some good wildlife sighting, a nice sunset, all very relaxing. A nice change of pace from traveling around the state hitting new and challenging rivers every few days. Pictures.
But as soon as the boats were loaded up on the cars the sky started putting on a very exciting show. News reports said it was averaging 3,500 lightning strikes an hour. Watching it the sky was basically lit up by the flashes. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
