Fun little HAZ gathering on the lake. With the road open, I decided to drive up and kayak to camp, somthing I've never done before. I basically just strapped my backpack to the front deck and paddled across the lake. Apparently my kayak is capable of holding a lot more stuff than I would normally backpack with. This is good knowledge to have for the next time I do this!

The others arrived shortly after me and we enjoyed the afternoon doing camp chores. There were a lot of bees around, especially in the kayak, where typically a dozen or so were buzzing around until I started paddling somewhere.

Two other groups had backpacked in and were camping at other spots along the lake. While there were a few cars at the dam, very few other people were on the lake. Knoll hasn't been stocked yet this year, and reports from anglers were mostly negative.

Sunday was breezy and cool. Early season on the rim is always nice. Snow drifts can be found in many shady/sheltered spots, the aspens haven't leafed out yet, and grasses are just now starting to green up from their winter brown.
