First Swim In Lake Siskiyou in 2011

OK, I, John Soares, did my first swim of 2011 in Lake Siskiyou yesterday, June 26, around 6 p.m. at Cable Beach.

The air temp was 80 degrees, skies were clear (a few cumulus clouds over the Eddys stayed out of the way), and the wind was about 5 mph. The water was cool, but not cold. I stayed in for about two minutes, including my signature back float with a 360-degree slow turn to take in the views of Mount Shasta, Mount Eddy, and the other mountains.

Swimming in Lake Siskiyou is one of my absolute favorite things about living in this area.
