At the cabin, no one has taken the time to name the lakes. They’re simply the First Lake, Second Lake, and Third Lake.  There are some rowboats available on the First Lake, but let’s take a walk instead.  As I’ve mentioned before, it’s wonderfully green, as you’ll soon see.  But let’s start with some yellow.

At the end of the lake, we can look down to where the creek drops down.  This time of year, you can hear the rushing sound and even see it for a bit before it disappears into the willows and other growth.  Willows are a favorite of moose, but unfortunately I don’t spot any today.

Turn the other way and you’re looking back toward the cabins.  Ours is out of sight on the right.

The lupine are beautiful and abundant around the lake and elsewhere.  We’re about halfway now and that will do it for now.

    What a beautiful place for a wonderful walk. I recognise the naming theme with the lakes – our local woods are called the first and second lol

  9. Lignum Draco says:

    A lovely serene location and walk. Maybe you should name the lakes, This, That and The Other (in deference to the name of your blog). 🙂

    • Ha! That name came about because at the urging of my husband and younger daughter that I blog, I’d gotten everything on WP ready, then at the end, was asked the name of the blog. Having nothing ready to hand and being unwilling to go through the entire process again, this (or that or the other) is what came to mind. I thought it wouldn’t pigeonhole the blog under any specific topic, leaving me free to figure out what the heck I was doing! 🙂

    Beautiful! It’s raining here today, so I’m happy to bask in your sunshine! You could at least call the lakes by foreign translations: Lake Primo, Lake Secundus, Lake Tiga. Lovely scenery; wonderful photography!

    • Or Eins, Zwei, Drei or… 🙂 We’re having sun here in Naperville as well, although rain was in the forecast and we could use it. It’s probably because the little local farmers market cancelled due to the forecast!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
