Postcards from Lake Payette

Today we arrived at the Field Campus of the U. of Idaho in McCall. Those of you that have been reading my blog for awhile know that I facilitate and participate in an annual writing retreat here in McCall, Idaho. The camp sits on the shores of Lake Payette. The lake calmed down as the sun began to set this evening.
BW and I opted to come a day early this year so we could have some time for setting up and relaxing before the other participants arrive tomorrow. We built a campfire and enjoyed a peaceful evening with the whole place to ourselves. I look forward to a good week of writing, reading, and relaxing.


  1. What an amazing sunset! I hope you have an amazing, creative time.

  2. why does the water on the lake (or reservoir behind the dam) always calm at sunset. I wonder what the natural phenomenon is called.

  3. Looks like a lovely place.

  4. Perfect just perfect..



I always enjoy reading comments!
