On the Hill: Stand-up paddleboarding on Nottingham Lake in Avon

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

Today's activity: Flatwater stand-up paddleboarding on Nottingham Lake.
Today's weather: Partly cloudy with cooler temps and wind.
Forecast: Tomorrow should be sunny and about 60 degrees, say forecasters.
Conditions: On Nottingham Lake in Avon, a patching project means no paddleboat rentals this year. But stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is still on, leaving SUPers with the lake to themselves on many days like today. And with the winds we saw this afternoon, the flatwater of the lake still proved to be a challenge to navigate on a SUP, making for an ideal training ground. Check out Alpine Quest on Hwy 6 in Edwards for SUP rentals. | "Like" us: |
