The morning was a nice one, so we headed out for a paddle in the kayaks.

After loading the kayaks, it was time to head to Beaver Creek and get some fuel. We also wanted to visit with some friends - Beaver Creek is my home town.

After some visiting, we decided to head back south again, not sure where we'd stop for the night.

We overnighted at Lake Creek campground. It was busy and we arrived late, but got a nice site.
