One of my favorite things to do is to take I-15 north, get off at Beaver Dam-Littlefield exit. Take a drive on old Highway 91, then left through the Shivwits Paiute Reservation to the reservoir at Gunlock State Park, about a 45 minute drive from Mesquite. I actually stumbled upon this great little lake when I took a wrong turn while looking for the Kayenta subdivision on the way to Santa Clara, Utah. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, no matter what time of year it is.
Great place to get some sun, go fishing, camping or just sit around and enjoy the view.
The lake is pretty high right now, submerged trees and bushes. I was waiting for the sun to set and get a great shot, when a kayak appeared and set out across the lake. What a great way to end the day - for me and for him!
Kayak on the lake at Gunlock State Park in Utah - about 45 minutes from Mesquite NV - a great afternoon!
