Outdoor Photo of the Week: Kayaking

Today's Outdoor Photo of the Week comes from the kayak trip that we went on today. It was a lot of fun and we got to get our kayaks wet for the first time this season.

We were out on Lake Tapps in Bonney Lake, WA. Next Sunday we're going to head out to the Arboretum in Seattle for another trip.

  1. Beautiful views on Lake Tapps in Bonney Lake, WA. It is suitable place for doing kayaking. It's become one of the options for a vacation with family. I really like traveling with family, especially on the weekend. Well, then if I have an interesting photo, I will send to your email. Thanks…

  2. Kayaking seems very interesting. I think this exercise is much better than exercising with exercise equipment in your home. Kayaking is not only useful for your body but it is also entertaining. While kayaking, we can enjoy beautiful view of the water and the scenery closes to the lake.

    I'm interested to this activity. I want to do this activity. Can you give me general tips for kayaking?
