Based on my incomplete experience with those lakes I would say there is some quite nice swimming, off large rocks or sandy beaches, and some sites are next to nice swimming spots. Some sites are in...

Chimney Mountain is a popular spot, but very interesting if you like odd rock formations and caves and don't mind some people around. I don't know what the current trailhead access situation is with...

Luckily there were no loose dogs on the way home, but I had a couple of chairs that I would have been willing to sacrifice in such a cause, if necessary. I'm planning to put them on the free section...

It looks like a neat trip. Thanks for posting the pictures too. I especially like the heron rookery picture. I have been wondering lately what a heron does with its legs when sitting on eggs in a...
