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: Summer’s Paddlin’ Secrets
The Triangle might not seem like a paddler’s paradise at first. At least not wedged between the miles of black water and sound paddling at the coast and classic whitewater of the mountains. Dig around, though, and you’ll find all sorts of surprises.
Today, we highlight two. First, the waters of Falls Lake where the Eno and Flat rivers feed the reservoir. Second, Lake Raleigh, a small flood control lake on the N.C. State’s Centennial Campus that has a hidden paddling life behind its open waters.
