At first glance, it seems an idyllic spot. A beautiful picture.
Here’s what not so obvious:
The bank is 2-3 feet of ooze. Shoes simply get sucked off your feet and anything this stuff gets on stays on. It’s a full-time job trying to stay clean when the only place you can land the canoe is in a mud pit.
I thought Kinbasket Lake was bad. Rookie mistake. This Red River mud could give the Ganges a run for its money. As nasty as it might look, it smells even worse. Maybe even worse than me.
