we woke up to find we paddled all the way to mile marker 12! we casually made our way down the rest of the colorado, exploring different rock structures and peeking into some coves. our backs were getting tight as we neared the end of our journey, but we continued to eat tangerines for energy and paddled to the edge of davis dam (or at least to where the markers allowed us), to complete our trek! we had to paddle into the wind a mile and half back to the marina that we passed on the way to davis, which was where the jeep was parked. overall an amazing journey that we would definitely do again, perhaps in the summer. upon looking at a map later on, we found that on night two the reason that light was so faint and gradual upon reaching was due to it being on the opposite end of lake mojave. yes, we kayaked the entire length of lake mojave and didn't notice!
