After subjecting you to the horrors of dead vermin, I thought a few pictures of a beautiful scene would cleanse the palate so to speak. One of the most enjoyable things about moving to a new location is exploring the local flora and fauna. The terrain and climate here is so different from what we are used to; I still can’t believe all the water. Creeks, rivers and lakes are everywhere. Our latest discovery is Lake Shannon, which is only about a mile above the town of Concrete.
We went down to Concrete to do a few errands. Since we had heard that the lake is just a short distance from town and we weren’t in a hurry, we decided to take a look. It was so serene and quiet on this lovely, warm Wednesday afternoon. We only saw a couple of boats in the distance.
The snow-capped mountains in the background with the lake and trees below was a very picturesque detour on our way to the grocery store.
