Today it was windy. The wind ripples the surface of the lake so there is no reflection. The color of the lake changes too, moving from the deep cobalt blue to more of a royal blue. Still - very intense.
I have been seeing a peak in the distance but wasn't sure what it was. I am now sure. It is Mt. Shasta in California, 105 miles away.
This is why I do not lean on trees to look into the gorges around here. To quote an old Margot Kidder line, "you've got me? Who's got YOU?" There is nuffink but air under that puppy.
