Every once in while it's fun to adventure outside of the valley, every once in awhile.
We arrived with intentions to paddle this beautiful 650 acre lake. However, the park gates were closed. Walking down to the water's edge and picnicking on the rocks would have to do. It wasn't long before we heard the loons call. Sighting them a couple hundred yards across the lake, it was a delight to have them swim into this little cove and picnic with us. And if my camera battery hadn't died I would be showing you how really close they came, but you get the idea.
