My Mom passed away Sunday afternoon. She and my Dad would spend every summer in Westcliffe, Colorado with this view out of her kitchen window. My Dad and I returned here today for one more sunset. My mom appreciated my photos perhaps more than anyone else and she especially liked the black and white pics. This one is for you, Mom. I love you.

The 320 acres of Camp Marin Sierra is part of the Tahoe National Forest at an elevation of approximately 5,500 feet. Chubb Lake provides the camp with virtually all the aquatic programs Scouting has to offer except motor boating and waterskiing. A notable point about Chubb Lake is that it is approximately 30 feet deep in the middle and therefore one of the warmest lakes in the Sierras. (from the Camp Marin Sierra website)
