Paddling with Dad~Sawtooth Lakes


I have been thinking about my Dad a lot this summer.  Being in Bali and spending so much time on the water this summer has allowed me time to feel his presence.  He is always there looking after me.  I always loved telling him about my different adventures and he would just laugh and with his beaming smile.  Man, he sure loved to laugh.


My Dad had some great sayings…”talk is cheap”,  “you got to want it” and “finish strong”.  Dad would have been 79 this year.  In honour of his birthday I paddled the Sawtooth lakes.  I love you buddy.

Stanley Lake=2.4, Redfish Lake=9.7, Petit Lake=4.5, Alturus=4.7

Total 21.3 miles
