Putting the "Lake" in Little Lake Valley
The watershed of Little Lake Valley flows north to a bottleneck called Outlet Creek. Rainfall comes in the winter and spring, and if enough happens quickly, a lake forms from the backed up water making its way through a gap in the hills. All that remains of the "lake" this year can be seen in the vehicle track through this marshy area. You can see the water glimmer if you click on the image for a larger view. I'm surprised that these oaks grow on such saturated ground, but they know what they're doing.
