A gem in the crown of stunning countryside.
Funny how things happen!
In last Wednesday’s post I included a picture of Jean with Robert who helped us load 60 bales of hay onto our trailer. This photo:
Anyway, Tad, who farms the land, mentioned a wonderful place to fish not far from his farm at Wolf Creek.
I’m not a fisherman but Andy, who is staying with us with his wife, Trish, is a keen fisherman.
So last Wednesday we all set off into the high forest lands up above Wolf Creek and after some pretty tough driving up some steep dirt roads found the lake. Here’s a record of our morning at Secesh.
As you can see, it was a breath-taking oasis in a sea of tall trees and towering peaks.
With crystal-clear waters that just seemed to be calling out to those that enjoy fly-fishing!
Meanwhile, yours truly decided to walk the perimeter of the lake that is, apparently, some 3.7 acres of water area.
Towards the farthest point of the shoreline, a beautiful stream was flowing into the lake.
And not too farther along, a likewise beautiful stream outflowed from the lake.
From this vantage point, one could look across the full breadth of the lake.
And marvel at the wildlife, from ….
… the very small, to ….
…. the stunning eagles of the land. A veritable icon of this country!
Returning in time to see Andy pulling a (small) fish from the lake.
And Jean and Trish catching up on old times.
What a fabulous discovery!
Less than 25 miles from home.
Thank you, Tad!
We will return – possibly with a dog or two!
