Caples Lake

Hike a Ridge-line

Posted on Updated on

“April showers bring May flowers”. Showers in the high country mean snow and what better way to take in the views than a hike along the ridge-line.

010Happy New Year! This is Caples Lake, seen from the shore it is almost frozen over. A few more weeks and this lake will be completely frozen.

Frozen Shoreline

037Here’s the frozen shoreline of Caples Lake. I liked the interesting shapes of ice that formed. I’m not sure if there’s a boulder under one of the round ones or if somehow the currents created the ice disks in the water.

This is my 800th post! Wow and it’s the close of 2014! I’d like to wish you Happy New Year and may the new year bring you joy and happiness. 2015 brings some new travel adventures so I will be posting once a week instead of daily.

Thank you for visiting, “liking” and posting comments! Please keep ’em coming!

Best Wishes
