What was I thinking. Head north on a Holiday weekend, when it's still close to 110 in the valley, to of all places.... a lake.

Finding parking here was a treat. It took 20 minutes to get past the loop by the store... No open spots... Then over to the Day Use area of Rocky Point.... I couldn't even pay to park because they were full. No worries.. there was plenty of free parking just off the road.

The South side of the lake was a zoo. There were people, Kids, and rental boats everywhere. hiking counterclockwise on the lake loop, once you got past the spillway, it was quite enjoyable. You ran into the occasional hiker, but for the most part, you had the trail to yourself.

After completing the loop of the lake, I took the meadow trail out to the Rim Road, to get the never tiring views off the rim.

Even with the Labor Day crowds... a Good time
