Frozen Lake

We rode up to the top of Lake Mountain in mid-April.  The first part of our trail was over hills with a few patches of snow remaining.  Coco and Daisy enjoyed the sun.  Between them, Marsh Peak rises in the background. 
We saw  a deer herd,
and a dozen or so elk.  They were retreating over the hill by the time we got the camera in gear. 
As we approached the 9000 ft summit, we trudged along a snowy forest trail.
Mischief and Daisy wanted to participate in Janie's lunch break.
Up top, Gull Lake was still frozen.  We saw a coyote scamper along the shore.  He didn't stay around long enough to have his picture taken. 


  1. Wonderful captures of your travels. The scenery is spectacular & I feel as tho we actually travelling with you.

    Have a beautiful eve ~
    TTFN ~

  2. Beautiful but oh it looks cold! What a lucky capture of the deer and elk. Great picture of Janie and Mischief by the lake. :-)

  3. Dang but that looks like a cold ride.

  4. What a fabulous ride that must have been, I'm envious Janie.

  5. Perfect name (Lake Mountain), Janie.... Looks like you all had a great trip... I'm sure that Daisy was thrilled to get to go too.

    I laughed at the deer --since they were ALL looking at you.... ha... AND seeing the 'back' side of the elk was cute.

    Thanks for sharing such beauty with us.

  6. I do enjoy seeing the beauty of the snowy scenes, Janie.
    The only white I see under my feet is sandy :)

  7. We didn't have much snow here, so it's a pleasure to see these pictures of the snow-capped mountain and frozen lake.

  8. Wow, you guys are so extreme. Wonderful pics, great adventure.

  9. Wow, this is one great place. I love your adventures, you're taking me to places I have never been to and maybe never will be at :) Thanks for that!

  10. Goodness, this is beautiful.

  11. now that was a fun ride--so much diversity. And then to follow it up with a ride to the desert, what a contrast.

  12. So much beauty in nature...I love it. Cute shot of the elk butts. :)
