A Dip in Dickey Lake

Karl had some errands to run in the morning so we made a leisurely morning of it. Breakfast. Showers. Walks on the property. Watching wild turkeys and deer cut across his fields.

When Karl returned we loaded up and headed to Dickey Lake 17 miles from Eureka. It was a hot day and we settled ourselves onto a small patch of downtrodden grass nestled between the larch and fir trees. The lake features a spectacular turquoise color from spring fed glacial till of nearby Glacier National Park. We swam and floated in the cool water. I relaxed by casting for trout, unsuccessfully but satisfyingly all the same.

After our swim we packed up to head for afternoon beers at Karl’s new brewry: H.A. Brewing Company.
