Table Rock Lake

Lifting mist at Piney Creek – Complete with a heron.

Mist on Table Rock Lake.

Through the veil – looking across the lake, the mist was lifting.

View from the lake.

Fun and frolics at the lake – The lake was warm, almost bath temperature. I didn’t bother to count how many times I took a dip. It was a lot. Slideshow: +5

Enjoying the view – between interludes of journaling and swimming. I even completed some camp chores.

Day Two – Piney Creek lakeside vistas. I never tire of the play of light on the trees here. +2

First glimpse of the lake – but not my first encounter. I checked the lake level before I left, and it was five feet above standard pool. When I was here this time last year, I think it was eleven feet above pool. Anyway, the lake was high enough to have covered the trail in places on the way in. One-minute read

My campsite by Table Rock Lake – It’s a shame my stay was cut short by my COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

Clouds – I was hoping for a nice, as in flaming oranges and yellows, sunset. It didn’t happen, but this cloud formation and an otter made up for it. One-minute read

Wind on Table Rock Lake – I feel like I’m home when I get to this view.

Camp life (cont.) – Heating some water on my Fancee Feest cat-can alcohol stove. I was being lazy, and couldn’t be bothered to light the woodstove just to heat up some hot dogs and boil water for a cup of tea. Piney Creek Wilderness – Day Two. 2 pictures
