Lake Laura in August

We visited the beach at Lake Laura. Frank grumbled at the idea of the steep walk up the hill so I drove through the lake-side residential area until we came to the "Path to Lake" sign. I dropped them off there so they only had a short (and downhill) walk. Then I drove back to the parking lot below the dam and walked up. It was hot hiking up there in the sun but the lake looks lovely once you pass the dam.

The "beach" has only a small sandy area but there's room to relax on the hillside among the pines. There's a place to rent a small boat, but I believe it closes after Labor Day.

After hanging out a little while, we all walked down the path, taking care not to slide on the steep spots.
