Over the holidays my daughter and I went on a short photo hike around the lake. Here are a couple of the pictures we made. I’ll post more over the next few days.
In the distance, across the frozen, snow-covered lake, you can see the 100-year-old Hume Lake Dam. Originally built to provide water for a logging operation, it now creates a recreational jewel in the Sequoia National Forest. In the summer thousands of people enjoy fishing, sailing, swimming and canoeing in its waters, which also support a healthy mule deer population.
- Boats that in summer bear laughing children and hopeful fishermen across the water lie grounded for the winter, waiting for the spring thaw to resume their duties.
