Twice in the past week I've been able to drive some private roads, because of my job, that took me just south of The Narrows of Hamlin Lake. I'm going to pull out some maps first. Hamlin Lake "intrudes" itself on many of my adventures because it's so large. I've talked about it before and shown you this map. Yesterday I was directly west of point 10.
To be exact, at the red X for these pictures. The roads in this private area are one lane wide, and this spot is at a very small bridge across a creek that drains a marsh. It's marked "Cross at your own risk," but it's strong enough, just probably not up to public road standards.
Anyway, from that point you are directly across from the Hamlin Dunes. These are the dunes I swam to a couple of years ago. Lots of people take their boats there for a summer outing. They are a part of the State Park, but not very accessible from the land side.
A week ago, it was warmer, but the day wasn't as sunny. Here's the picture I took then. I like the monochrome feel of it.
And yesterday, it was really cold, but bright. Heck, I like the sunny shots too!
Finally, this was shot into the sun, looking down the lake to the south into the sun. But I like the results anyway. This is the big view.
I also took some interesting detail pictures. Maybe you'll see them tomorrow. By the way, the sunset was gorgeous again tonight, right off my deck. But I wanted to show you these.
