Cottonwood Lake - My Video And Snow Photos (November 28, 2008)

I visited Cottonwood Lake on the morning after Thanksgiving Day. I live in Buena Vista, CO and I begin the video clip with me driving on Chaffee County Road 306 with a great view of Mt. Princeton. As you can see, we have snow on the ground. In the late afternoon, snowfall began to fall in the valley ... We had a white Thanksgiving!

Please enjoy the video clip. I also included a few extra photos in and around Cottonwood Lake below.

All the best, Steve

Much of the lake is covered in snow.

I thought this was a nice shot of the ice.

Ice Fishing

I had the entire lake to myself with the exception of these two ice fishermen on the lake.

For those of you who are curious what the Cottonwood Lake Campground looks like in the winter, here's one photo. It's closed!
