Even though our recent trip to Clear Lake was only three days long, we experienced so many different kinds of weather it made for a very memorable time. The day we arrived was windy, with dark clouds threatening — not exactly ideal for a fishing trip.
It rained off and on all night, and we woke to yet more black clouds, with a few breaks in the weather giving me the chance to wander, briefly, along the lakeshore at Nice. But when the rain returned, I had to give up and retreat back inside; and I was so glad I did when I saw first sleet and then snow coming down.
It wasn’t until the day before we were due to leave that the weather finally cleared and I was able to get out and explore a bit more, visiting Rodman Slough and later Anderson Marsh, which I showed you in previous posts. Even though there were times on this trip when I felt like I was jinxed, struggling to get outside and shoot anything at all, in the end I did manage to come home with a decent collection of images. In a later post, I’ll share a few more photos from Anderson Marsh and shots from my drive back home along Highway 16.
