Photo detail

Fishermen enjoy Bear Canyon Lake on a recent sunny afternoon. The lake provides good fishing from the shoreline and also from small boats. The steep trail down to the lake from the parking lot deters some people, but once they descend, a beautiful man-made mountain lake greets them. Hikers around the shoreline can often see osprey diving to grab fish from the lake.
