Meadow Lake

Meadow Lake's a little low this year! Some water is still flowing in, but not much!

On the other hand, White Rock Lake is looking great!

One of these days!

Funny, I just realized that my avatar, speeding along in the dust, was taken out by White Rock on one of the roads.

I had heard that also, but not true! Here's the access to the campsites.

After you ride around the lake, you come to this (the Mt. Lola trail continues from here)

On the way over to White Rock:

A few years ago I went out to White Rock with Rob while everyone was crawling down the Fordyce on the Miyagi weekend. I'm not going to do the Washington dust storm, we should get a group together to branch out - maybe ride out to Mills Peak.

Here are a few Pic of about the same ride I did last Sunday. We unloaded @ the Perazzo Rd turnoff. Made a 46 mi loop out of it. Seen two groups of Peep @ the White Rock Dam and a quad and sideXside @ Meadow were the only ones we seen all day.

Looking South where the OHV trail comes down to White Rock Lake -- We first seen the eagles here. One had a fish in tow.
Image
We ate lunch on the East end of the lake and watch the eagles for whole time.
