Cabin Lake (3)

Cabin Lake hike, third set of photos. It was a great day for clouds!

The old signs that are far away from the roads are still in excellent shape although some of them are nearly eighty years old.

  1. Absolutely beautiful! What odd cloud formations– almost like wisps of cotton!

    • I was mesmerized by those clouds. Very different, aren’t they!

  2. How lovely! I bet there are good fish in Cabin Lake. The trail looks like it is easy to follow. Nice photographs!

    • That time I didn’t try fishing. Perhaps next time I’ll stay there a night and try fishing for my dinner. It’s a very well maintained trail. A little steep through some switchbacks, but pleasant all of the way.

  3. Great trees and great sky.

    • I love the forest in roadless areas, and being so far away from “civilization”, the air is clean.

  4. I think the sky was trying to keep up with the beautiful scenery!

    • I love days like that! It was warm enough though that the shade felt good.

  5. Looks like an inviting spot to spend a warm afternoon with toes in the water and eyes on the clouds. Thanks for sharing.

    • The water was about right for that, although maybe a little cool for swimming.

  6. Fabulous! Gives a great sense of freshness.

    • Yes, fresh air and fresh water. Even this time of year the night time temperatures up there are cool too (in the 30’s and 40’s).

  7. Clouds can really add to a mountain scene. Nice!

    • Summer clouds here are a show by themselves, especially if there is a thunderstorm anywhere around.

  8. The clouds have been awesome lately in my area, too. Must be all the rising air the summer Sun is creating.

    Terry, these are beautiful.

    • True. This time of year the tall peaks create their own clouds over their tops and make some beautiful scenes.

  9. wow! Beautiful photos, beautiful place. Wish I was there! Love you Dad! 🙂

  10. Gorgeous country and clouds. Awesome and unique cirrus cloudscape shot of the last photo.

    • Those clouds really caught my attention. A rare configuration.

  11. A-MA-ZING! Unreal…the sky, the firs, the mountains, the clouds, the water, everything! God’s Country.

  12. The last cloud looks like carded angora wool…so soft and wispy.


    Comment by kateri — July 22, 2010 @ 5:49 pm

    • That’s a good way to put it. There must have some interesting wind conditions up there to create that.
