everything has a starting point and this is our starting point for our hike up to the libertly lake waterfalls. Spring is the best time to go because it is cooler, less bugs and the water is flowing down the mountain. much of the lake is now a marsh area which is a haven for all types of birds. there is a viewing point out which is a long deck that goes out on the marsh. this is the view of where I am headed in the next few posts. those distant mountains.
