In order to repair the dam, the park maintenance crew drained Lake Ilsanjo in Annadel State Park to a level as low as possible. According to Cap’n Will (he and Jeff often swim the lake) if you tried to swim it right now you’d scrape your chest across rocks on the bottom. I suggested he try the backstroke.
After I pedaled into Annadel and up to Ilsanjo, I didn’t want to swim across the lake, but I wanted to get down to some of the newly exposed lakebed. Despite my efforts, that worked about as well as the backstroke.
