Boysen Reservoir, part 3

Just 4.2 miles south of the Boysen Dam turn-off (on Highway US-20) is a dirt road we overlooked until today. We followed it southwest toward the reservoir and found a place used by ice fishermen. Here is a link to the map.

it was nice to see you in one of the shots. the snowy ice on the plants is really pretty. you must have picked a really good camera. looking at these makes me realize that i'm in a very different place and a little cold weather would be so nice right now...
