Grab the steel home Airbnb for the weekend, you will not regret it! Nice place to keep our stuff while on the lake.

Beautiful beyond words. Nice hikes around or near lakes. Throw on a wet suit and go for a swim. Great place to run. It's quiet. The mtns loom large.

Nice views, good stopping place for a leg stretch. Couple of places to stay (closed), little shop (quite expensive). Number of walks to do. Worth a quick stop unless you want to have a good hike.

We got lucky, the weather held. The view at the lake was breath taking. I forgot just how beautiful this state is, this was a great reminder.
