The 22 Mile Long Run - 08/14/2010

I went on a 22 mile paddle with 5 people from the group.
We left from Cold Spring at about 10:30 and headed towards Annsville in Peekskill.  We paddled against the tide and a fairly strong head wind.  We averaged about 3 mph and stopped at the Bear Mountain bridge for lunch.  We decided that it would be better to head back towards Cold Spring and up to Bannerman's island to get in our 22 miles.  We averaged about 5.5 - 6 mph on the way back since we were going with the tide and wind.  The trip back from Bannerman's was rough with 2 - 3 ft waves and 10 - 20 mph winds.
It was a great trip and we all had a good time.
Here are some pictures from the trip.
