Trip Description: A redirect from Lake Ouachita, AK to Toledo Bend Lake, LA


Note: This trip can be done as an extension to the preceding non-HASK car camping trip to Talimena State Park. Contact Willie Younger directly if you are interested in that. The location of Talimena State Park is close enough to drive to this put in on Friday morning.


Hazards: Still warm in the middle of the day. 86 degrees average high. 68 degrees average lows. Long paddles with planned breaks every 90-120 minutes.
