So quiet  
Place: Lake Morena, off I-8 near Campo in San Diego County in Southern California
Date: February 20, 2017
Weather: Sunny but getting cooler

Lake Morena pier
I took Interstate 8 toward my hotel in Imperial County. It was a beautiful drive across a grand landscape. At Lake Morena I stopped for a snack and a breather. It's a San Diego County Park. After the hustle and bustle in Balboa Park, the quiet of this secluded little lake was very welcome indeed.

Lake Morena
I shot a short video, so you can hear the stillness. If you turn up the sound, you can hear a couple of ravens over the hum of the wind.

Eight.
Lake Morena is a reservoir. This is looking toward the dam from one of the two piers.

This is looking more south-east, toward an inlet. The hills are green from the recent rains.

Eleven.
You can rent motor boats for fishing. Fortunately nobody was out on the lake, disturbing the quiet. It was blissful.

Boat hire shed.
This shed is for the boat hire people.

Fish scales.
There are scales inside for weighing fish.

Goat Island.
I went out on the other pier and took this photo of Goat Island and the north shore. It's a small lake, but I really enjoyed my visit to it.
