New kayaks

Sylvia and I are taking a trip in about a month to Montana and Idaho, including Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. We are bringing bikes, so don't have the space to carry our regular boats also.

But we wanted to be able to paddle around some areas on this trip. We saw inflatable kayaks on sale at REI, so decided to pick up a pair. After paddling our regular boats last Saturday, we then inflated these and gave them a try. They work fine, and should be a lot of fun on the trip.

Though I may need to figure out how to inflate mine more so that I don't sink the rear end of my boat (though maybe I should just lose some weight).

The chocolate edamame is probably from Trader Joe's. It looks like it.

Is this kayak a sit-on-top kayak?

I think this would just be known as an inflatable kayak.

A sit on top kayak would be made of a hard material - usually plastic.

The opposite is a sit inside kayak, where one sits inside the boat and wears a spray skirt to seal out the water. This is the type of kayaks we normally use.
