10 Dec 14. The path that leads down to the trail circumnavigating the small group of lakes collectively called Chain Lakes, has at its midpoint a beautiful little stone bridge that gets you safely across the water so you can traverse the entire trail. However, were there no bridge at that location, you could easily wade across without getting much more than your mid calf wet with the most treacherous part being that you might slip on some algae and get the rest of you wet, but that's about all. The little stone bridge is rather photogenic, and I'll wager more than a few shots have been taken of it. The rock of which it is made is really quite beautiful in its own right, and depending on the light striking it you may or may not be able to take in its full beauty. The afternoon while we were there provided for some rather nice light, on and off, so I took several shots throughout my walk hoping to get it in its best presentation. I think this shot does a reasonably good job of portraying all the color present in the rocks, but it is entirely possible that there may be more. The early afternoon light also gave some nice color to the surrounding foliage, so overall the scene was nicely colored. All we were missing that day were a few trout.
