Yes We Have A Lake

I have referred to the small Colorado town, where we live in the Summer, Lake City. Folks usually ask me it we have a lake? Indeed we do. The second largest natural lake in the state. Located just three miles south of town on state hwy. 30.

Lake San Cristobal was formed approximately seven hundred years ago, when a nearby mountain slid down and blocked the river. I took this picture on my walk on Saturday morning. It was about 10am and I was amazed that there weren't more people on the lake? We are remote here, so if you enjoy getting away from the crowds ....this is the place for you!
Finally, after walking almost a mile I did see a small boat with a fisherman. I hope that you are having a peaceful day...Janey


  1. The mountain lake looks like it goes to infinity. We hiked off Independence Pass last week - lots of people at the trailhead but after a few hundred yards, nobody! Tourists don't stray to far away from their vehicles - thankfully.

  2. Wow! It's a beautiful lake!

  3. Like Barb's area Janey this is exquisitely beautiful. I love remote!

  4. One would feel very peaceful in these natural surroundings.
