Here's what it looked like up at Lucky Peak Lake this morning shortly after sunrise, as Boise-area windsurfers and kiteboarders took advantage of the early-morning breezes to kick off a all-week run of 100-degree days. By 7:15 a.m., there was a flock of us up there, close to 20, with the big kites dipping and soaring like exotic birds and the colorful sails whizzing across the water like intensely motivated butterflies. Early mornings like this make the heat bearable - that and afternoon air conditioning. Too bad we can't all handle the afternoon heat like my cats; they just curl up and snooze the day away until it's cooler…
Boise is basking in summer-like weather today, and has been all weekend; here, a windsurfer and kitesailors enjoy the sunny waters of Lucky Peak lake early this morning. After predicted highs of up to 90 degrees today, there’s a chance of rain tomorrow.
The early light kisses the hills around Lucky Peak Lake this morning, just after sunrise, as a lone windsurfer skims across the lake. Boise’s cool, rainy spring has put a crimp on the usual spring recreation for this time of year, so today - forecast to be the one warm, sunny day of the week - drew people out early, from windsurfers and kitesailors to swimmers preparing for the upcoming Ironman triathlon. Chris Lee, pictured here, was the first out.
