|Mentally preparing for the rush of cool water immersion|
On the way to Albion I drove up to make sure that the gates were unlocked. I sent Cathi with the family the day before to attend the full reunion, but I lacked PTO to attend the whole thing. I sent her with the trailer loaded with the Kayak and wanted to know if it was even reachable by vehicle. It was! I was so happy.
This morning after the family breakfast I loaded up the kids in the car along with a cousin, and we drove up there for my swim, and let the kids have fun paddling the kayak on the lake.

Yes there is snow on the side of the mountain.
I did two more laps and the GPS I was trailing behind me in the waterproof container on the Swimmer Buddy Board came to: 2.32 miles in 1:25
I wanted more, but I promised my Mom I'd be back at noon for the family reunion auction. I had a great time and the water was a very cool emerald green color. I saw lots of fish and lots of fishermen on the shorelines. I'm sure they thought I was insane.

Elevation 8200 ft, 57°F
I'm looking forward to Bear Lake next weekend. It should be in the low 60s so even a couple degrees should feel much better.
Total Distance: 2.32 miles in 1:25 in 57°F
Leave for California on Monday, but not till noonish. I'm going to take advantage of the day off work and hit Pineview in the morning at 0530. I won't get to swim at all on Monday otherwise. But Tuesday I should be swimming in the Pacific Ocean for a little. Very excited!
