Silver Lake Flats

Last Monday- Memorial Day, Lauren and I headed up to one of my favorite spots- Silver Lake Flats. We packed sandwiches and had a small picnic.
We enjoyed the view and the fresh air.
As we ate we watched families canoe around the lake and kids play in the water.
After lunch we took to the trail and hiked for a while. The views were spectacular, like I expected any less.
The wildflowers aren't out in full bloom yet, but there were a bunch of these adorable yellow ones.
The trails here are lined with Quakies, I thought they typically grew straight but these ones were all curly and twisted.
It was such a great afternoon, I seriously needed a day in nature.

What a beautiful place! I've never been there. I going to have to hike there in a few weeks and hopefully catch it when the flower blossoms are at their peak. The yellow bunches are Oregon grape flowers.

Great pictures and photography skill. You've captured the place beautifully.
