I love the words lake and forest. So, this is the continuation of the last article written about Dupont Forest. Fawn lake and Lake Julia are too beautiful to be represented vaguely. Hence, this will be a small dedication to what my personal experience was like with these two beautiful places. After accessing through Fawn lake road, you will arrive at some crossroads that eventually lead to Fawn Lake. Not a single soul was there when we arrived. It was all about peace and tranquility. Few birds were singing along the morning hours and autumn was showing its facet beautifully.
With proper gear to hike, the trail isn’t too tiring. The day was somehow cloudy so that helped maintain our fatigue under control somehow. Fawn lake is composed of a relatively small lake with a small, wooden, sitting cabin. The fact that we were completely alone made the experience seem unique and certainly more enjoyable. Picturing the lake itself was a lot more comfortable too. We were able to spend just over thirty minutes enjoying the surroundings and resting. Right after that, we were right back on track through conservation road all the way towards Lake Julia. It is very interesting that the forest has been used in at least two movies; namely the Hunger Games.
So, after at least 25 minutes we arrived at Lake Julia. On our way through Conservation road, we passed through the small airstrip mentioned on the previous article. It is meant mainly for the forest staff. A few couples were shooting selfies on the strip and one of them even asked for some directions around the forest. We were able to help out since we had done the route they were about to take. The humidity of the forest could be smelled very noticeably. We were also able to encounter some logs on the side of the road.
To be honest, Lake Julia is prettier to me not because of its size only. I also find it more appealing and picturesque. Some chipmunks were playing around and the trees merged gorgeously along with the lakes pristine waters. It was very easy to take several pictures from distant angles given that the lake is very impressive as a whole. I really loved the far views of the like with the distant trees. The lake itself portrayed canals which vastly amazed me. Families can spend hours enjoying the views around the lake and make picnics too. Overall, it is worth visiting this part of the forest at any time of the year. I would definitely go back without hesitation.
I could honestly spend hours and hours simply pondering whilst appreciating the views at Lake Julia. A poet could use this visual ambient as inspiration for a written piece. A painter can imagine colors later implied in a canvas. Musically one could structure a soothing melody later to be produced. I, personally, indulge in the greater visual schemes projected through my simple camera. Few things are as a important to me as being able to depict time in a still fashion through the means of photography. Enjoy this place dearly if you ever wish to visit!
