Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Paddling Lake Crabtree
We know, it’s only Monday. But it’s never too early to start planning for the weekend, so allow us to plant a seed. As the weather and local waters warm, the opportunities to rent a canoe or kayak start to blossom. At Lake Crabtree County Park in Morrisville, for instance, the boat rental season begins this Saturday. In salute, we re-offer this 90 Seconds of escape on Crabtree’s placid waters.
And to help you take advantage of the various rental opportunities around the state, we direct you to our online guide to 51 Places to Rent a Canoe, Kayak or Standup Paddleboard in North Carolina.
It could be the best five bucks you spend all summer.
