Pics

Ok ok Stripperguy! Some pics - not high resolution though... the trail was pretty bad primarily beyond the Pilsbury split coming from the Pilsbury trailhead. Also heard the trail to Pilsbury Lk was flooded. Everything was crossable but definitely the 4 days without rain made a big difference on the way out. No paddlers, though it would have been a beautiful place to paddle around. I was wishing I had a 12lb boat. Not sure about water level since I haven't been there before... but it seemed quite high. Dam was holding...

Sure looks like the water level is higher for you...
Here's nearly the same view from the 1st lean to



See how much more of that deadfall is exposed?

Funny, last August the trail was dry as a bone and the lake wasn't even reaching the dam. One of the most beautiful places.

Wow yes those rocks were all well under the water. Would be quite the "beachy" spot in lower water. Saw crayfish, pickerel frogs, newts and tons of minnows... great spot for enjoying the lake. Pretty pretty boat...
