PHOTOS: Witches conjure up the spirit of adventure at community paddle

The fifth annual Witch Paddle took place on Tie Lake

A black-hatted coven worked their magic at Tie Lake on Sept. 23 for the fifth annual Witch Paddle.

Witches traded in their brooms for paddleboards, kayaks and canoes, and glided over the still and opalescent water with their furry familiars. They drifted past beach-front homes and circled the lake’s island. The misty mountains, smokey grey sky and enchanting fall leaves gave the landscape an eerie and mysterious quality.

This weird, wacky and wonderful event gives participants the chance to dress up, socialize and have fun, and helps build anticipation for Halloween.
