I haven’t done a good job of keeping to my goal of one post per week… obviously, but I’m not giving up.
A few weeks ago, Sam and I got to go camping up at Woods Canyon Lake. It was a first time visit for both of us and the first time in too many years we’ve gone camping together.
We arrived around midday, picked our spot to set up the tent, then headed to the lake for an adventure.
The lake was a little crowded, as it’s a popular recreation spot, but it is a sight worth seeing.
Sam and I decided to hike the trail around the lake:
As we hit what we thought was the half way point, storm clouds began rolling in. We quickened our pace a bit only to discover we weren’t near the half way point at all. Luckily, the clouds moved around us, for the most part, and we only had a small sprinkling of rain.
The hike turned out to be 5.2 miles all the way around and worth every step.
At night, we could hear Elk bugling which is something that just needs to be experienced. Imagine a broken steam whistle blowing at full power… that’s the best description I can offer.
The next morning, we rented a boat and cruised around the lake for an hour or so. It was a beautiful morning; the weather was calm and being out on the water was very peaceful. We witnessed a hawk dive out of the trees and pull a fish out of the water about 20 yards from us. A sight we may never see again, in person! I was driving the boat and wasn’t able to get a picture, but, like the whole trip, it was an experience we won’t forget.
