Back in time to Easter 2014~
I had been thinking about visiting a certain destination for quite a long time...
I consulted a topographic map
(which made it clear this wasn't going to be an easy trip for me)...
but still something compelled me to want to see this place--
to relive a little bit of my childhood again.
So Easter of this year we headed towards a certain forest service road
(another clue it wasn't going to be an easy trip)...
on the way there,
I announced I had changed my mind...
my hubby hadn't changed his:)
So up we went on this narrow winding
(but thankfully paved road),
The views were pretty amazing
but there was a reason there are almost no photos going up
(the terrain map was correct and there was no guardrail).
And then we were there...
The lake was situated amidst a forest on the mountain.
The water was peaceful and there were lots of reflections to be seen
(along with a family and fishermen).
It was SO quiet...
Out of order photo--
a bit of the roadside scenery
(in other places you could see nearby mountains and the view at the very top of this mountain is said to be spectacular on a sunny day).
Moss, moss everywhere--
I LOVE moss, can you tell?
Some skunk cabbage from across the lake with reflections...
This is an old picnic shelter...
there were also some camping sites and hiking trails in the area.
And some very special lake inhabitants.
On another note--
for those who might be interested,
tomorrow will be the 63rd National Day of Prayer here in the USA.
My granddaughter and I are planning to say a prayer for our nation...
you are welcome to join us in doing so..
see this website for more info:
And some verses quite appropriate for tomorrow
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV
Mt Hebo area
As my special visitor is still here...
and still wide awake,
please excuse any errors :)
