My favorite time to paddle is early morning in the pre-dawn hours and just after dawn. It is so quiet and peaceful!
So many times, we do not stop to enjoy the moment in which we live. Every time I kayak, I am reminded that life is a journey not a destination. My Journey provides me the opportunity to slow my life down. While I understand that many prefer the excitement of whitewater kayaking, the tranquil mornings during which I paddle brings me closer to enlightenment each time I paddle.

French Lake rests in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Preserve in Oklahoma. During this paddle, we saw elk and a bison. The bison even crossed the cove about twenty yards from where we were paddling. While this lake is very small, the beauty of the mountains and the wildlife is stunning!
