Take a Hike: Lake MacBride

I have to admit, I spent very little time here. I had hiked Palisades-Kepler (previous post) in the morning and by the time I got to Lake MacBride, it was even hotter and I was losing interest in being outside.

I’d had Lake MacBride on my list for a while. I’d seen some shots other photographers had taken of a small waterfall and I was excited to check it out and try my hand a long-exposure photography. Unfortunately, the day I went, the lake was on the low side and there was no water spilling over the rocks. I was a bit disappointed and a little thrown since my plans had been destroyed by the lack of a waterfall. So, as I stood there trying to come up with a plan B, I ended up talking to a woman who was walking her dog. She told me about a paved trail that ran along the edge of the water and had some nice views of the lake. So, I turned back, found the trail, and followed it for a good stretch before I decided it was just too hot to continue.

Much like Palisades-Kepler, this park would’ve gotten much more of my attention if it hadn’t been above 90 when I was there. The lake itself is huge–I didn’t cover even a fraction of it or the trails. I’ll be going back for sure. I’m still hoping to get some shots of that waterfall!
