2017 Jim and Sandra Schmid take boat tour at Lake James State Park – NC

Lake James State Park is less than an hour to the east of where we live in Black Mountain, NC. Sandra signed us up for one of their monthly patrol boat tours. Two of the Park rangers guided us around the lake on the lookout for waterfowl. We saw lots of ducks along with Linville Gorge and Table Rock Mountain in the distance. It was a sunny day, but really cold on the water, hence all the clothes.
