Thanks Ski.What a great excuse to spend a night out and about.

That's nice area around Lost Lakes.

I find it interesting the tops on the hills you climb have all that loose flat rock.

You must have encountered the very large rocky grave site at the base of the low Lake. Particularly well done with a nice unmarked, slab type, headstone. Often a single Lake in years past, during high rainfall years, now too much reoccurring drought. I recognize a handful of these posts, had to comment on this one. It’s dated history of being a getaway for that quick, quiet night. Weekday, anyway. Great pics. Meadow L at the other end of the drainage has pretty Cutt’s.

Thanks for taking us a long and boy an I envious or you guys----nothing but smoke here! I'm inspired now, so I'm going to try again to get out of the smoke and head up to Lakeview then east to the Sheldon and  south to Austin and the Monitor Range-wish me luck and no smoke/fires! Nice and comforting TR!
