Loch Lomond

“Don’t go chasing waterfalls…” – A song I think

After scrolling through a few nearby trails, we drove to one that had everything we were looking for… lakes, adventure, pretty flowers. Nowhere in the description did it mention that a 4×4 was ‘recommended’ to get up the road. We waved at the trucks and jeeps as we slowly crawled up the road in our powdery blue subaru. We peace-signed a few for good measure.

Loch Lomond didn’t disappoint. The lake was dotted with a fair amount of kayaks and canoes, but less people had ventured up to the three other lakes that feed the larger lake below. The waterfalls were splendid, and followed each one higher, onward to the next.

The topmost lake was hot, despite being surrounded by snow. At the end of the day, we were ready to get back down out of the relentless sun.

Several small boats launched out into the loch to ferry their passengers closer to the waterfall.

We were already happy with beautiful views, ready to take on the day.


Lakes All Around

The twists and turns of these small alpine streams lead us from one lake to the next.


Alpine Melt

What’s better than dipping your toes in the ice-cold water of an alpine stream on a sunny day?


Meadow

Pops of color everywhere, with little wildflowers dancing in the breeze.

These little falls disappear over the hill.

This alpine lake, surrounded by snow, was so incredibly hot!

    Very pretty!

    It would be helpful to indicate the state and/or region at the beginning, because many of us have no idea where these places are! I thought it was in Ireland, though I hadn’t heard you took a trip there!
