Kind of had to kick myself a few times to get moving today. It dawned really cloudy and ugly.
But off we went to Big Lake with some other stops along the way.
We hit a campground that is mostly for folks who have horses. There are small corrals made of logs. The name is Gerbaldey or something like that which leads to a few trails one such trail is Baldy
Then we moved onto Crescent Lake
As you can see the clouds were ever present. This is the smaller part of the lake where it starts
Wild flowers are everywhere in lots of colors
We are now at the center of the lake
Lucy found a snake swimming in the water
cloud shadows and sunshine
Lucy had the sharp eye today and spotted this guy
Then we moved on to Big Lake
Never have either of us seen this lake so packed with people in boats, and catching lots of fish
see the tiny dots way on the other side that's where I started to take pictures
After zooming in
These White Aspen have carved with so many names over the years
Here's another find by Lucy at first I thought it was a dear but it is an Elk
Further down the road Lucy spotted a herd of Elk
Here we find a young buck, there was a full grown one in the back and always undet cover of the trees
We hit some hard rain on the way back to Lakeside and had to pull over a few times. But I am now thrilled that I at least made it to Big Lake before I went home. I sure will miss these mountains. Hope by next year I will be able to find a small camper and can stay for the season.
Good Night All
