... paddling today, but also was able to see where we paddles last year.
As you can see, the lake is beautiful! And while it was a bit windy at the overlook, the water was very calm. Lake Towada is a volcanic crater lake created thousands of years ago and still fed by some thermal springs, but mostly filled by all the snow that falls in this area ...
... was REALLY whipping ...but I kept going! As you can see, I was properly attired ... no exposed skin! Luckily, the wind was at my back going up. Coming down it was a bit brisk as it found a few spots to sneak in around the goggles.
