What An Awesome Day

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


  1. I know you wish you could stay forever how beautiful it is there!!
    The lake, the flowers, and the animals all make up a good reason to want to come back! I hope you can find the perfect trailer for yourself, I know you been looking a while and I have a feeling it will happen for you soon!!

  2. Hi Sondra,

    Thanks, I think it will come soon too.

  3. I love the photos of the clouds-mountains-water. They make me feel like i'm right there. I also hope I can find a small camper, even a teardrop type, that I can sleep in for an extended stay and cook out of the back of it. Maybe we will both get lucky during the coming year.

  4. Hi Gypsy,

    I hope so too we need to be able to get out and enjoy when ever the mood hits us. I see lots of the tear drops and I have seen a few of the smaller trailers I want but the prices are a little higher than I can afford so I am going to start selling stuff off that I don't use anymore to raise the extra cash

  5. So gorgeous, Jo!

    I think I am almost as excited as you about your getting a trailer and spending the season up there.

    Good luck this time finding one!

  6. Hi Sharon,

    Glad you like the pictures. I hope I find something too. Heading home in the morning :(
