Trip Overview

5.10 mile paddle in about 2.5 hours. Started at the Chicago Kayak Rental put in on Tower Rd and went south through Lagoon #3. Stopped by the dam to Lagoon #2 and thought about a portage but decided against it in the cooler temps. Circled back around north to Lagoons #4 and #5. Stopped by the dam to Lagoon #6 and again decided against the portage....maybe next time.
