Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day in the mid 70’s with the sun shining bright and a nice breeze blowing all day. Christina and I decided to try out a new kayaking spot in Shelbyville, Ky called Shelby Lake. It’s a small 20 acre fishing lake in a Clear Creek Park with a tiny campground, volleyball nets, hiking trails and lots of wooded areas with picnic tables to hike or boat to and pull out to relax and have a bite to eat.
Once you get to the end of the lake you can continue on for quite a while on Clear Creek, which feeds Shelby Lake. We went as far as the highway overpass and then turned around and we paddled for about two hours. We will go back earlier in the day where we can paddle further and pull out at one of the picnic areas and have lunch.
Here are a few photos of our expeditions. The rest can be seen on my Kayaking Lake Shelby Flickr album – more will be added with upcoming visits.
