The lake is deep with life

These photos of Canyon Lake show the depth of the life found there. These are photos I took over the years.

From bighorn sheep


to a blue heron



To cactus and shrubs



And humans driving over the one-way bridge that leads to the only boat ramp.

Your pictures are fantastic Brenda. Imagine, seeing a big horned sheep where he actually belongs -- outside a zoo.

We have the usual suspects around these parts -- coyote, bear, deer, wildcats. Any siting is a thrill.

Sighting, I mean. (At least I didn't spell it "citing.")

I got excited when I saw this post on Canyon Lake. I spent a lot of time at Canyon Lake, California water skiing in my younger days. But, I quickly realized that this is not the same Canyon Lake. Yours is much more beautiful. Great pictures!
