Over the weekend HRWC hosted a Full Moon paddle. This year’s moonlight paddle brought us into the Pinckney State Recreation Area. We met at the Crooked Lake campground put-in, paddled down the scenic winding creek to Pickerel Lake. Once we arrived at Pickerel Lake we paddled around the nearby tributaries and perimeter of the lake until sundown. We were expecting a Supermoon, and definitely received just that. The Moon’s light was bright enough that some chose to not use a flashlight on our paddle back up the stream to the Crooked Lake campground launch.
A very special thanks to Barry Lonik being our guide on the trip, and Dea Armstrong for always having her eye’s and ear’s open for bird identification. Dea successfully identified 22 separate species of bird’s on this paddle.
