Rain Shadow Kayakers
Paddling with Felix to the Ballard Locks
(Sort of)
September 17, 2008
This was to be a nine mile paddle from Lake Union through the Ballard Locks and out to the Puget Sound. The small lock was
closed for repairs, Felix told us, so we would ride with the big boys in the big lock.

Below, we paddle under the bridge connecting Lake Washington to Lake Union. This canal lowered the level of Lake
Washington by six feet.
Our group was dazzled by the many house boats.
