Paulina Lake

On the way home from my Yosemite trip I spent a night at beautiful Paulina Lake in central Oregon, which has one of the best around-the-lake hikes anywhere, straight from one of the campgrounds.

The trail is right next to the water a lot of the time

Sometimes it gets a little higher

There is LOTS of obsidian here

Lakeside campsites have great sunsets. The bird in this shot was just a lucky stroke for me.
