Once the weather warmed we were able to explore our new neighborhood — and we were absolutely thrilled when we stumbled upon a reservoir within walking distance of our house. It’s great for an afternoon stroll or as part of our morning jog.
Hidden among acres of state park and hiking trails, the reservoir is quiet and peaceful. As the sun is rising, a calming fog hovers over the water and the entire place looks like a postcard. There is even a 16-inch koi fish that seems to enjoy saying “Hi” to his neighbors. The trails lead to other wonders like waterfalls (beautiful), abandoned shacks (creepy) and all sorts of natural wonders.
