Crystal Lake Never Looked So Good
We finally made it up to Crystal Lake this past weekend. We hadn't been up since May. Between our schedules and the HEAT this past summer, we were unable to travel up the mountain.
This is what a man made lake or pond looks like when someone (the previous owner) lets trees grow on the dam. The roots caused the dam to leak. In the winter, the water covers the rock, which is to the right of the picture. The dam is in the background. Basically, the entire picture should be water. One day it will be.
We found a dam man that will fix the leak. It will take a lot of destruction and replanting, but hopefully we can get Crystal Lake back to it's glory.
It's really difficult for me to come back down. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll be able to go up more this fall and winter.
Oh, the bottom photo is a sandstone rock.
Until next time.....
