Posts Tagged ‘Stumpy Meadows’


Last weekend my husband and I got into the car for a leisurely drive and one area that we wanted to see was a nearby lake called Stumpy Meadows. This is one of the areas that was hit hard by last year’s King Fire. Having downloaded the photos, I wanted to share with you photos that I took last July 2014, which was two months before the fire hit. The enormity of the devastation can be seen when you compare the two sets of photos. What is most sad, is that this fire was started by a fellow who had too much to drink and his campfire got out of hand.

The first photo is from July 2014, and the one that immediately follows is from last weekend.

When we were at Stumpy Meadows there was a mother and son enjoying paddling boarding on the lake. What could be better on a hot day then a day with Mom on a lake? This actually looks like fun and some good exercise too! Let’s take a look, shall we?

Stumpy Meadows got its name from all the trees that were cut down to make this reservoir. Look at the shore in this photo…Be sure to click to enlarge the photo!

This boy is very lucky that his Mom spent the day with him doing this! My Mom: Forget getting her out on the water on one of those boards! My Dad might have enjoyed this!

Enjoy your Tuesday! Thank you for dropping in today! Be well! ^..^

We took a drive yesterday up to Georgetown, and decided to go further and head on off to Stumpy Meadows to see how low the water level is on the lake. While there, overlooking the lake by the parking lot a sudden movement caught my eye. It was a squirrel that was scampering amongst the rocks that line a part of the lake.
