It’s been quite a while since I went out on the Stand-up Paddle-board, with the nice temps in Phoenix right now I had to take advantage!
While April was extremely nice, May started out hot, I believe we’ve hit 107 already this year, so when I saw a high of 87 I knew it was a good afternoon to spend outdoors!
Headed down to Tempe Town Lake after an early out from work. The only real task is getting the SUP inflated, which takes some work. Why I haven’t gotten an electric pump is a fine question, because it’s a solid 5 minutes of pumping!
I do love having that lake there, so easy for a quick paddle. In 20 minutes I’m on the water!
Went from the beach to the far east end of the lake and back, with a little chilling in the middle of the lake. 3.5 miles and one fine afternoon. There was some battling of the wind the whole way back, it always seems to find me!

Stoked the Colorado backpacking trip is only 2 weeks away, so here’s a pic from one of those great trips!
