Beautiful Lake

We had a quick walk along this lake as it was a cold and gloomy day. We were still able to appreciate the beauty of this lake regardless of the weather!

We visited the lake out of season but it looked amazing. We did walk in a couple of places to take the views. Very peaceful and serene. The views looking down from the highway of the lake and town were particularly good.
