Lynx Lake

Lynx Lake

With clear blue skies and temperatures in the 80s, we headed to Lynx Lake to observe campers and for a hike. We discovered that although all the campsites were reserved for the weekend, less than half were filled on our Friday morning outing. There were several tents and small trailers, a few small Class C vehicles, and only one large Class A RV. We talked with a camp host with a year contract who shared her observations about recreational vehicles and why she liked her Class C RV.  Recreational vehicles raise interesting life style questions. After our campground visits using Homestead Trail #305, we circled back to our car using the East side of Lynx Recreation Trail #311. A few kayakers explored the inlets while other visitors fished from boats. A goose and three white ducks expecting a snack scrambled toward us. Later, a medium-sized turtle sunning on a small stump eyed us as we skirted below the dam. Four more turtles enjoyed the sun on a log in one of the inlets. The man-made 55-acre lake had more water than on any previous visits. This impacted were we could cross to get back to our car. We visited the Lynx Cafe for lunch. From inside the cafe we looked out their large picture windows to see hordes of feeding hummingbirds as well as the lake. We are fortunate to have such a picturesque setting near us.
