“Some awesome lake reflection photos.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I went to this lake area in search of avian life. I didn't see many birds but the reflection photos of the mountains and some of the colorful grass and trees surrounding the mountains were excellent.

Very picturesque and well worth finding. We are into Geocaching and searched for a few in this area. Quiet, peaceful, and very beautiful.

“Great views of Mt Rundle”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Frozen in winter but nice nevertheless with great views of Mount Rundle including the sun rising behind it if you get up early enough. We also encountered a group of mule deer next to the road.

Reviewed January 3, 2013

Took a little detour to see the snowy landscape. Unfortunately didn't see any wildlife, but very beautiful scenery all the same.
