Scenes Along California's Highway 88

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Friday, while a small contingent of my family and I were out exploring wilderness areas along California's Highway 88, we managed to witness a number of nature's wonders.  I feel very fortunate to have these majestic scenes less than 100 miles from home.

We stopped at Woods Lake for awhile to try a little fishing.  But family members who fished didn't receive a nibble.  However, the gorgeous views provided compensation. And, the shimmers from morning light sparkled like Tiffany diamonds on the lake!

For information regarding camping and recreation at Wood's Lake, you can visit this website: Wood's Lake Recreation Area.


I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on this photo, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website - Thank You!

Hi Myrl, 

Another scene that makes me want to transport myself to this area and enjoy the afternoon with a picnic lunch while soaking in this beautiful scenery.

Myrl Jeffcoat - Woods Lake Recreation looks like a magic kingdom, peaceful, calm, and filled with life and many wonders! Your photos are simply gorgeous! If someone offered me a free week, all expenses paid vacation to Disneyland or a day trip to the Woods Lake Recreation, I'd choose the later.

I think fishing without getting a nibble with those views would be fine with me.

Hi ya Myrl, looks like high water at Woods Lake. You know I opened your blog today about Sly Park to show my husband your photos and also asked how come we never go there. Adam says he doesn't want to drive an hour, and besides, it's too windy in Sacramento. So I suggested we go bowling at Land Park Bowling, and he just laughed and laughed at me. You'd think I had said let's dress like clowns and run down Broadway. I was just trying to think of an indoor activity.

Your photos, as always, are gorgeous. Makes me really want to go fishing!!!!!

So pretty and dare I say - mountainous!  It's so easy to forget California is a huge state with more than just the west coast!

Oh, the very first thing I noticed were the diamonds on the lake, Myrl - absolutely glimmering as if to say, "Take my hand!" 

Gorgeous shots, Myrl! How wonderful to have that within 100 miles of home.

That's my kind of fishing.  Not having to really mess with the fish, but just take in the surroundings.
