Lake Santa Margarita

Like the Nile, the Salinas River flows north. The source of this important river is Lake Santa Margarita. It's not the biggest lake in California but a visually dramatic one with some nice hiking trails, such as the one that led to the promontory seen here on the left.

(Ted assured me that promontory was the right word for what we were standing on.)

While exploring we encountered this skeleton of what was probably a deer, a possible indicator of mountain lion activity.

Needless to say, the grass was very green.
