Perfect evening on 60 degrees north latitude

Day 27

I finished paddling across Lake Laberge.

Since strong wind and wave in the morning, I waited for those to calm down as slept in a tent, and then in the afternoon those decreased gradually.
Catching a wind and waves that pushed me from behind comfortably, I glided the kayak on the water. Smooth surfaced rocky mountains lined to the right.
When I reached around the end of the lake, the wind stopped completely; it was surrounded by a silence without even sound of leaves rubbed against each other, and I could see flowing pebbles through clear water of the lake. Just only, a song of bird, and a sound of that a bird dived into the water to catch a fish, sounded throughout the lake sparkling in sunlight and the forest of spruce like a soft carpet.
The perfect evening on a 60 degrees north latitude.

Total distance: 187 mi

27日目


 全長50キロメートルのラバージュ湖を漕ぎ終えた。

 午前中は風と波が立っていたので、テントの中で寝ながら待機していたが、午後に入るとそれらは徐々に穏やかになっていった。
 強すぎることなく快適に後押ししてくれる風と波を受けながら、湖面にカヤックを滑らせた。右手には滑らかな岩山が続いた。
 湖の終端にさしかかると、風は完全に止み、木の葉のこすれる音さえ消えた静寂が訪れ、透き通った湖水を覗けば流れる小石が見えた。白くて大型のツバメのような鳥が飛び回り鳴く音と、時おり水に飛び込んでは魚を捕らえる音だけが、斜めに深く差し込む陽光が煌めく湖面と、絨毯のように柔らかく広がるトウヒの森に響きわたる。
 北緯60度の美しき夕方。

総距離: 299キロメートル
