My goal was to see a moose and I knew chances were better if I went to Silver Lake before 8:00am. It was quiet at the lake with few people about, and no moose to be found. I slowly walked around the lake, looking into every nook and cranny, and still saw nothing but the tiniest of wildlife creatures.
The views were still as wonderful as usual, and with few people about, it was quieter than expected.
The foilage is vibrantly green, as summer hasn't been as hot as past years. The water of Silver Lake was calm and reflective, the sky clear with only a stay cloud floating by.
I stopped by Silver Fork Lodge (just beating the Sunday crowd by minutes), and treated myself to my favorite breakfast of trout and eggs. How does that saying go...
Life is good.
