Kayaking-Lake Johanna-Arden Hills-Minnesota

On the evening of June 17th 2022, I went kayaking (for the first time ever) on Lake Johanna with a friend.

Summer is here! Time for an adventure on the water. The temperature was warm and the sky was crystal clear, a truly perfect summer evening. We launched off the dock to kayak clockwise around the lake. A kayak tour by the University of Northwestern was our first destination.

Our next destination brought us through a patch of lily pads. The water-lilies were just beginning to pop.

We kayaked under the University’s walking bridge. The picture below was taken just on the other side of the bridge, my favorite.

We passed by a loon. It didn’t seem bothered by us kayaking quite close at all. 

As we continued around the lake we spotted a beautiful heron catching its dinner.

The sun was beginning to set as we docked.

I had an absolute blast kayaking. I cannot wait to go again!
