The Hidden Lake
Along the last road I traveled I noticed a few signs to a nature area. This place is really close to my home. After a few miles I found the place and took another long dirt road into it. At the end of the road I found this lake. It's called Deer Creek Lake. Strange name.
I had to go all the way down the path to see these two sides of the lake. The first picture shows the right side and the second shows the left side. I had to lift my camera above my head to get a shot of the lake above the tall weeds.
The boat ramp ends in these tall weeds instead of the water. It all seems like the water should be maybe about twenty feet higher than it is now. I wonder if that's the case or if I just don't know what I was looking at.
Even though it was a shame this place has fallen into such disrepair, it was still a fun little adventure into a place I've never seen before. And just across the main road there is another creek where I saw an egret resting there. It flew away before I could get a picture.
This post was a little later than I intended because I was installing Windows 10 on a third computer. I've had it on my main computers for about a month and I really like it. I always go for the new stuff. It combines the best of Windows 8, and there was good stuff there, with the best of Windows 7. But enough about that. I'll talk to you later.
