This is one of the prettiest lakes around here, but it’s hard to get to as the road is VERY steep and rocky with scary drop-offs. A 4-wheel drive is definitely mandatory. The day I painted this it was another perfect day, with a nice breeze, stunning colors, and happy fishermen who were catching good-sized trout. And since this lake is at about 7,000 feet all sorts of flowers were still blooming up there even if everything down here has dried up.
