Monday, July 24, 2017 Paint-Out Frenchman's Lake

Paint-Out at Frenchman's Lake

Date:  Monday, July 24, 2017
Time:  9:00 am
Place:  Frenchman's Lake - see map below

I will be camping at Frenchman's Lake this weekend.  The lake is full this year and I am curious how it will look.  I actually don't know the entire lake and vista potential, but I have been several times to one place that I recommend we meet.  It is where Frenchman's Creek goes under the road and empties into the lake where volcanic rocks are.  There is area to pull off the road and park on both sides of the road.  On the other side of the road there is a lovely meadow vista with the creek running through it.

From Reno, take 395 north, then go west on 70, then turn right in Chilcoot to go to Frenchmans Lake (there is a sign).  When you get to the lake, go left, and where you see the black lava rock and water inlet, this is it.

As always, if this place doesn't inspire you, try driving around the lake and fine your muse.
