The day started out pretty cloudy, but the view was still amazing. This picture was taken from a tall wooden viewing tower that allowed you to see the lake (and a nearby town if you turned around).
As it was still early and not quite warm enough for a swim yet, we set off to explore some of the trails.
I enjoyed this one, cut deep into the surrounding rock. It felt like a secret, hidden trial full of enchanted creatures. In reality, the enchanted creatures were mosquitoes and one had to constantly be moving for fear of being eaten alive, but I liked the trail all the same.
Another trail led us to a series of Native American burial mounds. It was difficult to actually recognize them as anything other than the natural contours of the land, but this "Buffalo mound" was made easier with the help of the growing grass.
Can you see it? Its legs are pointing to the right and its head is toward the bottom of the picture.
After that, we had a picnic lunch and then a short dip in the lake. I had forgotten how much I love swimming in lakes! I really must do that more often.
In knitting news, I knit a hat last week that actually sometimes looks good on me! I haven't taken pictures because, well, because pictures of me wearing a hat in June would look silly, but I do like it. I'll try to remember to show you in the fall.
I also started a sock for the FOURTH time and this time I think it's going to fit. Keep your fingers crossed, please.
AND, I'm nearing the end of my oldest WIP. I started it in April of 2008 and finally I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'll give you more information about that when it's finished, too.
Hmmmm, that was all quite vague. Don't worry, I'll give you guys more details in the weeks to come. Tomorrow begins my week of finals before graduation. I may not have time to blog again until I'm back home, but I'm sure I'll have more to share!
