New style of the blog publishing for now. Too much going on even after dark. Blogs will be published at any time day or night as the adventures allow time to publish. This is a great way of living.

We had seen this trail for a couple of years and never stopped to check it out. We got Sierra parked at a wide spot in the road and headed out to see what there is to see. We know we have seen folks hauling stringers of fish out on this trail in the past.

You start by heading west from the limited and unofficial parking area that would be under water if the lake was full.

We know now that the trail winds along the lake finger and is near a very fishable finger of the lake. In fact it is the upper end of the finger that The Fishing Hole blogged about a few days ago.

These were the watch birds keeping an eye on what is happening in this area.

The trail winds on westward with short trails down to access spots along the shore area. It is fairly easy walking we found out.

After about twenty minutes of walking the shore turned to the right and got more cliffy. We soon spotted a couple of folks working over the first of the cliffs along the shoreline.

As the finger got bigger things got rougher so the OFM called it quits to any more forward progress. Check this far shore view and look for the black dot near the far shore.

Here is what a telephoto shot of the object showed us.

That certainly looks like a nice way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Trying your hand at fishing would be a great way of having tooooo much fun as long as those folks didn't empty the lake of its supply.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Wow. What a barren looking landscape. is that one of those foot paddle boats?

    1. I never got close to it but it does look like it is at this mile distance. Since the lake is over fifty feet low most of what you see was lake bottom.

  3. I guess you could do like they do in China; catch one of those cormorants, make a friend of it (or not), put a metal ring around it's neck so it can't swallow the fish,and take it fishing. Sounds like they are not diving to great depths around there. But if they're there, so are some fish I assume. And such clear water.
