This week we're thirsty for time on the water. Get ready to kayak your cares away.
1. Seven Caves, La Jolla, CA
Fun fact: the caves were used to smuggle whiskey during the Prohibition era! Give us a call if you find a flask.
2. Crystal River, Florida
Not too far inland on the Gulf coast of Florida, you can mingle with manatees in crystal clear water. There's no need to fear these curious creatures (they're gentle giants), but don't disturb them: manatees are protected by state and federal law.
3. Mokulua Island, Hawaii
These two small islands (known as "The Mokes") are popular kayaking destinations off the coast of Kailua. A quick half-hour trip puts you in a little Eden - a perfect place for barbecuing, sunbathing, and daydreaming.
4. Lower Mesa Falls, Idaho
This spectacular drop just outside of Yellowstone National Park will certainly up your street cred.
If you look at this and say, "hell no," then you're probably in your right mind. If you look at this and say, "let's go," then you're probably our people.
5. Glacier Bay, Alaska
Keep your eyes peeled while kayaking in Glacier Bay. A friendly game of "I Spy" could include black bears, bald eagles, moose, sea otters, and humpback whales. Oh yeah, and the stunning glaciers are hard to miss, too.
7. Sparks Lake, Bend, Oregon
This lake in central Oregon was a beloved subject of landscape photographer Ray Atkeson. After a day on the water, hike the Ray Atkeson Memorial Trail for a view of Sparks Lake through the artist's eyes.
Peace of mind comes from being on the water. Ultimate hydration comes from drinking Cactus Water.
