Three Lakes, One Day

We were off!  Early!  Our goal was to scout North Lake, return to Sabrina and South Lakes and have a whole lot of fun.  Mission accomplished!

 All three lakes are accessed from Bishop on Highway 168.  The road into North Lake was just opened and we were anxious to check it out.  If this scene looks familiar and you are a 'Mac' person you may recognize it as the opening screen on new Apple computers.  But the vivid color of fall that you see in that photo looks much more toned down in the spring before the aspen across the lake have even started leafing out.  You may notice the very thin layer of ice along the water's edge in this photograph.

 The road to North Lke is partially paved and partially gravel and is narrow and winding. There is a small campground near the lake and fishing is very popular here.  Trailers and RVs, however, are prohibited.  In the spring and early summer it is reported that mosquitoes can be an annoyance but we did not have that problem this early in the season.

 Local photographers are not happy that North Lake has become so well known as a photographic destination.  "Gets too crowded in the morning.  Can't get my favorite spot!"

 This time Sabrina Lake was blue rather than covered in ice.  What a difference two weeks can make!  Very popular fishing area.

 We took a lunch break and returned to the lovely little cafe in Aspendell.  There was a group of artists and they were happy to share their art.  We did not even notice this pond on our last trip where the snow storm had covered this all up.

 South Lake had more snow in the surrounding mountains.  I cannot get over how blue the skies and lakes are!

 This family reported that they caught their limit of trout and were on there may home.  Lakes around here are stocked, starting in the spring, with rainbow and brown trout.
