Today was a beautiful day to pay an overdue visit Spada Lake. The lake itself was gorgeous, and the downhill walk to the canyon was full of cascading water and glistening trees. This meant, of course, that we had to turn around and hike up the 700' hill after arriving at the river, but that made for a good, quick workout. The water in Spada Lake and the Sultan River (its outlet) has such an interesting cloudiness and verdancy to it. Good friends, blue sky, and the quiet forest made for a wonderful Saturday morning. I was happy to be able to snap a few pictures amid the catching up as well.
