What to Expect:
On Day One  we meet at Noon, load our camping
provisions into double sea kayaks
  and launch into the sparkling  clear water of Loon Lake. We will have
a leisurely paddle to our campsite with plenty of time for a swim (or
snorkel) in the cool freshwater.  The warm granite rocks that line the
lake are great for relaxing as others swim, kayak or explore. 
Fishing is reportedly quite good.

After setting up base camp, we'll relax and enjoy the beauty of this
rugged wilderness, home to osprey, deer, marmots and black bears among
other species.

  There are several options for Day Two and Three. A vary scenic and
moderate hike to  Spider Lake is possible and allows for a panoramic view
of the expansive Desolation Wilderness area. 

Single and tandem sea kayaks are available for use anytime.  Personal
instruction including rescue skills  is possible from an ACA certified
sea kayaking instructor.

On our Last Day, we'll kayak, swim, soak in the sun and explore the
inlets  of the pristine waterway as we make our way back to the launch
site by 2:00 pm.
