McCormack Lake

Sunday we went to a lake I’d been to once before. Standing in the parking lot, I remembered why I’d liked it the first time. It was quiet, there was a beaver dam, and it was easy on the eyes. Yeah, I liked it just as much this time around.

However, after we left the parking lot, my husband drove down a gravel road less traveled. Then, he pulled down onto a road to nowhere and I got out.

There I stood at the opposite end of the lake, and quite honestly, it was one of those moments, you know? Those instances where you see something SO beautiful that all you can do is weep.

And, I did.

To me, nature is like air. No wonder people hike thousands of miles or even a few.

A few steps over, this way or that, and your entire perspective can change.

    That is beautiful!!! And I know exactly what you mean about seeing something so beautiful. There are times I just stand and soak it in.

      Hi. ❤️ Love that- the soaking it in. It’s like that whisper from above that says, “hey look at this.” Pretty amazing stuff!

    Nature is so beautiful that it often brings tears to my eyes. We have a small lake near us that has spectacular views from its various shoreline areas. Beautiful picture of McCormack Lake.

      Aw!! That is so beautiful–love when the tears come. Oh, I bet that lake is pretty! And, thank you! I love that picture so much that I put it as the screen saver on my phone. Puts me right back in that spot. :) Hope you are doing great!

        That picture would be a perfect screen saver. Doing good here in my neck of the woods – Looks like you are doing the same.

          Thank you! Yes, doing good. Sure is some strange summer weather– chilly mornings and highs in 70’s. It’s spring- ha ha! :)

            Not sure what season this is. Mother Nature isn’t either. Ha
