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 this trying transition, we’re running a new feature every Monday called 90 Second Escape. Essentially, it’s a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s in the sun.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: On Maneuvers at Lake Wheeler.
For those who say flat water paddling lacks excitement, I would suggest they’ve never been chased by a U.S. Navy destroyer. That’s what happened on our recent kayak trip at Lake Wheeler in Raleigh.
