Honeoye Lake

Sorry, this isn’t a story of kayaking on a lake filled with honey. It is, however, a story of over-development and zebra mussels. My 2nd Finger Lake.

Canadice Lake

My Finger Lakes odyssey begins here. The smallest Finger Lake of all is possibly the most fairest of all. Forever wild, Canadice Lake provides the water that I drink.

Goal: Allegheny-Ohio-Mississippi

Read about a way-too-ambitious goal of mine. Probably on par with thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. Can I channel my inner Twain?

Goal: Erie Canal

One cool thing I’d like to do, that seems within the realm of possibility, is kayak the length of the Erie Canal. And possibly the Hudson River too.

Goal: Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes are basins carved into the countryside of New York State by the glaciers’ heavy hand. My goal is to circumnavigate all of them by kayak. So far, 5 out of 11.


Ahh…kayaking… there’s nothing like gliding along glass, peacefully observing flora and fauna in its daily business, and exploring far-flung corners of our waters.
