Our Lake

Many of you have already seen our lake, but I want to show it to those that haven't.
Our town  is named Lake City because of Lake San Cristibol ,which lies just 3 miles south of town. It is Colorado's second largest natural lake, formed over 800 yrs ago by a landslide damming up the river.
It is 2.1 miles long (3.3km), and up to 89 ft deep.There is a road that completely circles the lake, making for a beautiful drive. If you are lucky you will spot a moose at the southern end in the marshy areas.

  1. It's beautiful. Can you swim in it or is it too cold?
