What a beautiful hike with spectacular falls and mountains at trails end. We forged on to Inspiration Point for a sweeping view back across the lake. But then an afternoon rainstorm moved in so we hightailed it back to our canoe and paddled back into the teeth of a freshening wind which tested our stamina. We made it back and loaded the canoe just before the storm broke. Now we know to use a motor and avoid the afternoon since we know rain's more common then.
Later in the week, with outboard motor assist, we circled the lake, amazed at how much smaller it seemed without the paddling.
For those without a boat, a hiking trail runs around the lake from the Visitor's Center (about 3 miles long), and a passenger boat will take you across the lake. However, we didn't see it operating while we were there.
