Okobojo Point

I drove up to Okobojo Point, where John was camping, to go paddling this afternoon. This was my first endeavor onto Lake Oahe. Luckily the wind stayed down for the most part. We headed in a westerly direction; this part of the lake is a bend that runs east-west. We paddled about 3 miles to a point where John hid a geocache and then returned to the campground. We covered a total of 5.8 miles. The map below looks like we paddled over land, but I think the aerial photo was taken when the water level was down.
