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.

Deer Leap

Yesterday, we went to our first “tween” event, which was super fun. Then, we headed up to a place on the river called Deer Leap.

It’s a Forest Service recreation area with a campground, where floaters put their canoes in and take them out in the warmer months.

I’ve shared lots pictures from here before. Love it! Yesterday, we had all this beauty to ourselves!
