This is another undervalued reservoir next to Yellowstone National Park. The colors were amazing and the lake was fabolous! A must see attraction on the way to Cody! :-)

I've driven by this beautiful lake many times and it's always a scenic view. It looks like a great place for boating and has spots one could pull over for and enjoy picnic. Right on the scenic road to Yellowstone just 6 miles from Cody.

We spent time here just enjoying the scenery. It was a beautiful morning but too cool for any water activities. There were lots of waterfowl to enjoy.
