This island in scenic Pyramid Lake is accessible by canoe, boat, kayak or a wooden footbridge. It is a bit windswept in winter, but the scenery, as well as the lake ice can be quite pretty. Many tales exist of people getting out of their cars in the parking lot, walking across the bridge to see the island in summer or fall and then coming back to find a bear between them and their cars. This has never happened to us during any season, but, it would be a bit of a problem when the lake was not frozen.
Scenes from February 2005.
Glorious scene on Christmas Day 2009. Note the snowflake like crystals in the lake ice that kind of resemble the frost patterns that have recently been painted on our plastic deck bubble.
Not quite winter in November 2013, but not quite fall either.
