Awesome review! Paddling in the rain can totally be worth the effort, the mountains look moody & the lake it very still. Sounds like you had the perfect trip as the sun came out too! Thanks for your feedback regarding Abby, she's a delight!

We did the half day tiki tour. The online booking process was straightforward, the meeting point is easy to find. While it was a cool and cloudy morning, the splashjackets and hand covers kept us dry and warm, and the lake was beautiful. Abby, our guide, was fantastic. A
