Secret lake no more

It’s beautiful beyond measure. however.. now that they have graded the road (vs 4\4 access only) means tat they are logging in the area.

we woke up in this pristine paradise to chainsaws at 7am to 4pm. After setting up our whole camp ready to chill for 4 days we packed up and left :(

didnt leave…
