It was a fall day when we took a drive over the hill to the lake Santa Margarita. We had never been to Santa Margarita Lake and we were looking forward to seeing the sights.
The trees were shedding their leaves and the color of the leaves on were absolutely amazing. We live in Cambria, California and most of the trees are evergreen trees so we don't have the pleasure of watching leaves turn colors
The day we visited there were only a couple of people around the lake. I ask the park attendant what it was like in the heat of summer and she just smile and said, "this place is packed."
In this area of California the temperature gets into triple digits
a regular basis in the summer. I know, without a doubt, the lake
during the summer months.
