Taku Campbell Lake

I stopped by Taku Campbell Lake during my lunch break today. The temperatures have been in the mid to upper 50's, but it's been cloudy the last couple of days. Cloudy is sometimes good for a number of things and one of them is taking pictures.

There was a lone Common Loon enjoying the solitude right in the middle of the lake. Fish were jumping all around it and it just didn't care. ADF&G stocks this lake with Rainbow Trout and Land Locked Salmon. At one time it had a Northern Pike invasion, but I think that's old news now. Any which ways, the loon didn't care.

It's also a lake where people come to walk their dogs. Some of the dogs listen and some don't. Some attract people just because they are cute. There's a paved trail around 1/2 the lake and a dirt path around the rest. The city has been doing upgrades to the park area for the last couple of years.

The lighting was perfect for some good reflection shots. Cloudy days are great for that. I was there for about 45 minutes and saw lots of people and dogs. The whole time Mr. Loon (or Mrs.) just took it easy.

Loons are almost as intriguing to me as moose. Fascinating! Nice reflective shots, Dave.
