Anytime I want to get out of the cabin, it is nice to drive up the mountain to Deer Lakes.
It is always cooler up there, since it is above 10,000 ft.
and I usually can find some flowers to photograph.
It is a great place to fish too. I like that you can get a one day fishing license ...which is great for your guests who have no need for a one year pass.
It is also the number one place to spot a moose. The two we spotted this day were in the distance, and half hidden by brush.
Do you have a favorite drive of destination when you want to get out of the house?
