Green Lakes Hike

I meant to post these photos earlier in the week. Oops! Jack, Cliffie and I hiked at Green Lakes state park on... Saturday, I think? Last Saturday? It was the perfect day for a hike, and the park is (of course) beautiful. The lakes are meromictic, which means something like the lake's water doesn't mix, and the layers of water are different masses/densities/salinities. This makes the water a beautiful turquoise blue, like you see in the tropics.

Green Lakes is great! I'd LOVE to be able to scuba dive there someday lol. We went there over the summer, the beach gets pretty crowded, but the trails are all beautiful.
