Our evening sunset stroll across Gardener Park Reservoir gave a new perspective to Travato. We saw some ducks and a beaver.

We drove to a trailhead by Stillwater Lake to hike the Devil’s Causeway. This is the view before the final assent to the Causeway.

A fellow hiker took our picture – we had both tried to get a photo of the large marmot.

And the view from the other direction. We hung out for a while enjoying a snack. When we left at 11 am, it was clear, by 11:30 the storm clouds had built up, by noon in the Van it started to sprinkle. We stayed a head of it on the 11-mile dirt road drive out. We then drove to Edwards to spend the night with my college roommate.
