In our quest for the perfect lake with the perfect trees, Diana and I headed up to South Lake. This is the picture from the parking lot from when we were there 9 years ago.
This is what it looked like the other day.
But we, being the intrepid photographers that we are, headed up the trail to search for a better view. There were a few colorful aspens, but they were definitely past their peak.
Ah, there is some water in the lake, but it's way, way down.
The water level marks in the sand show the sad story.
We were joined on our drive by the antique cars which were participating in a 'poker run.' It was really a strange sensation to be in the midst of all these old cars - like some kind of a time warp.
Once again we found more colorful trees on our trip down the hill. This waterfall surprised us. It didn't seem to have any origin.
