This beautiful lake is kept pristine by people who care.
It is full of small sail boats and rented kayaks which go for 15 dollars an hour.
We brought our blow up boat with oars and my son and his friend had fun sitting in the water, paddling to the raft where they could jump off into the cold water.
It took them a while to learn how to paddle in one direction and not go in circles.lol
I find this boat convenient as
we can pack it up after every use into a small box.
Some of the fish are quite big because of the fish and release laws.
The mountain view around Lake Alta is breathtaking.
You feel the freedom as
people are more relaxed with their dogs and the dogs too are relaxed having freedom to walk and play in the lake.
People bring their children and other peoples' dogs also play around them and every one gets along.
A relaxed happy dog will never harm another person and is free to run away from anything it doesn't like.
This to me, is normal behavior as it should be and it did my heart good to see this.
As was expected we saw many kids on skate boards, roller blades, and wide surf boards you stand and paddle on.
We had a wonderful sunny day to boot and so it was a great way to end summer.
Now it's back to school and work
Back to the grind stone, just as we were getting used to the good weather.
