Campground - Dam Loop: Dam To The Half-way Point

At the west end of the dam, we followed the trail north and then west and southwest along the shoreline.

Almost immediately on the right is a tree with the largest gall I have ever seen. It must have started when the tree was small and has grown with it.

The trail follows the shoreline offering vistas of the lake.

The trail turns west and winds gently along the lakeshore. It's a pretty trail and fun to walk.

The dock by the beach and Picnic Area #1 is high and dry.

A closer view of the dock.

Fish attractors at the east end of Picnic Area #2 have been exposed.

Funny thing is... Believe it or not, I almost didn't see it. In color and texture, it tended to blend in with the tree trunk. I was walking past it when I suddenly realized what I was looking at.

I am sure I have visited recently and left a comment. A repeat visit is well worth it because your photos are quite stunning. I can smell the air.
