After our afternoon break from our expedition, we decided on a short walk out the resort driveway to view Pyramid Mountain and get a different angle on the lake. It was not a long walk, but we still had some energy left.
The water was a beautiful shade of green and the mountain was being lit by the afternoon sun.
To the North, we could now see the smoke from the Chetamon wildfire that we had been so much closer to on our bike ride, or were we closer now?
A lone daisy stood out along the edge of the lake
Recreational watercraft floated by in the distance
The light and ripples created artful patterns on the water
At this point, we spotted the overgrown lakeshore trail and opted to walk it back to the resort, rather than use the road. A large fallen tree made a great viewing platform to take it all in.
Sparkles lit the water
The sunlight caused this open conifer cone to glow orange
As we walked further, the path looked more and more overgrown. Obviously, few people used it these days.
This squirrel let us know that we were in his dining room and then proceeded to chow down.
We noticed a build up of clouds, as we walked further.
At long last, we reached the dock and looked back to see the wildfire smoke billowing up.
Smoke coupled with increasing clouds was making the views duller by the moment.
Time to head back to the bungalow.
