Looking north from the middle of Lake Traverse, 1976. As we entered the lake, we had been ambushed by a small whirlwind that came out of nowhere and kept spinning us around despite our best efforts to control the canoe. We couldn't escape, but it finally decided to let us go, and departed around the next point. We paddled along the now calm lake, looking over our shoulders in case it decided to follow us, but fortunately everything remained peaceful and we were able to enjoy the sunshine.
