Talk about an out of the way place, this lake is tiny. It's surrounded by trees and hills so not much of any view. It's also pretty cool temperature wise, very little direct sunlight.

The walk up to Agnes lake is well worth it not only for the amazing views but also for the delightful teahouse next to the lake. The current log cabin is a replica of the original built in 1901 but it still has a quaint...More
