We're still on the path leading down to the lake.
This creek is the one we crossed over two days ago and is flowing beside the path. This view is from the often algae-covered wading pool it flows into, just before you reach the path that circles the lake. On a sunny day in spring and summer, you can often see 20 to 30 turtles sunning themselves on the rocks, branches, and banks of the pool.
