On a smoky day I drove up into the hills to look for a smaller lake to paddle, then go for a short hike. I chose Pat (Six Mile) Lake. Access is on a rough road that turns off the Trans Canada Highway just west of Tobiano. the old double track was once the highway and a bit of the asphalt is still on the road, but the road is mostly potholes now. Both Pat Lake and Morgan Lake were dammed and the expanded lakes cover the old paved track. I parked at the east end of Pat Lake and paddled around the lake.
The shallow boat launch is actually the old road bed.
Pat Lake was one more lake in a season of paddling. This was day 55 of 66 days of paddling in 2020. Some lakes are paddled every year, some are every 2nd or 3rd year and a few are first time or last time paddles.
