Winter on Hume Lake

8 01 2008

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.
