With Memorial Day this weekend, Umiak Outdoor Outfitters is preparing to kick off a great summer season. The rivers are holding their water even with the lack of normal rain in April and May. Most of the staff are returning from last year and starting to arrive home (VT) from their winter obligations.
After work yesterday, several of the Umiak staff went out for a sunset paddle on Waterbury Reservoir to loosen up those muscles that had been dormant all winter.
Emma Porrett, received her Level 1 SUP ACA certification last summer and agreed to give some valuable pointers to the crew attempting the same course in mid-June.
The calm winds and beautiful backdrop made this first paddle a great start to the 2014 Summer season.
