We discovered a new place to walk recently. It is perhaps the most beautiful place I have found close to home. It is a disused quarry that has now filled with water. The water is almost crystal clear..... until the dogs stir up the mud on the bottom. But, it is a very clean lake and they don;t have a muddy or stinky smell when they get out either. Kids take blow up lylows and go swimming there, so it is a safe and clean area. The area surrounding the lake is covered in tall pines and it is stunning walking through the shade of the pines on a hot day and then jumping in for a dip when you get to the water.
