Little Lake

There is a pretty little lake about a mile from our place at Hasty Brook. I'm sure it has a real name but I've always thought of it as Little Lake.
The tamaracks were glowing along one part of the shoreline. They seem brighter on cloudy days.
I saw loon babies riding on mama's back for the first time this summer. There are only 2 house/cabins on this lake. I've nevere seen a motorized boat on it.
There is a wide spot in the road where folks fish for sunnies here. I think we'll try that next summer. Posted by Picasa

Really love that last picture - those trees are just beautiful and the colors are perfect. Don't you love lakes - any size?

You are just the luckiest chick around. What a wonderful place. Need an assistant the next time you go? I could carry bags, binoculars, the animal poop books....

These photographs make me miss the outdoors soooo much! SOOOOO much.

I grew up in southeastern Manitoba and those skies and forests look all too familiar ;)

They are really beautiful, all of them.

I love your tamarack photos! Seeing the baby loons on the backs of their mommas must have been precious! Ohhh, fishing, something to look forward to, huh?

Those tamaracks are gorgeous! Wow!

I like the small lakes; they are the ones that are not overrun with huge "cabins" and big motors. This one looks perfect.

Of course, I kind of got into my career path because of my love of lakes. :)

LauraO- I do love lakes, especially small ones.

Susan- Gotta find a poo field guide! LOL!!

Lea- Thanks for the comment. Northern skies really are beautiful.

Pam- We are looking foreward to fishing. A worm and a bobber are just my speed!

llm- I really used to think tamaracks were just junky trees until I paid them some attention!

Deb- Small lakes are so quiet and seem to be much cleaner too.

Laura- Come see the tamaracks!

Cindy- Thanks for visiting!! I hope you can come back to Minnesota. I would love for you to "see what I see". I am flattered that you have added me to your link list- THANK YOU!!
