I think this is a section of Caples Lake, still way up in Alpine County.
And soaking up the wonderful autumn colors of Hope Valley as descended.
Jimmy and I had hoped to make it up to the High Country one more time before winter's storms, and we're so happy we made it into Alpine County and Hope Valley. We loved our very special hike with Laurie and Odel to Lake Winnemucca on Tuesday! In these three days (Mon/Tues/Wed), I managed to put close to 46,000 steps on the ol' Fitbit, which equates to something like 19 miles. Whoa, that's just plain crazy! But, with such stellar weather and in such picture perfect surroundings, how could we resist being Out and About?
Now (Saturday evening) we're hunkered down listening to the wind howl and the rains fall hard ... our parched and dry NorCal is no longer either. We've had a good soaking for two days, and so has the high country. Well, we got to see it in its glory!
