Breathtaking colors; the white of the sails and blues water wrapped between green rolling hills and purple blue mountains. Plan for a stop on your way to Cinderella's castle.

A beautiful lake with spectacular views of the mountains. Trails take you around the lake if you like nice walks. Great picture opportunities all around

We spent a whole morning first to the west shore and then the east. It was so so beautiful and relaxing. We are photo lovers and we took so many pictures there. It is good for sports, family with kids, couples, and of course lovers.

Unexpectedly beautiful spot, worthing stopping for more then a few days to really enjoy. Take time to really explore the lake. The cable car to the top of the mountain is a great way to get a great perspective.

We had 3 days excellent cycling in this area. The trip around the lake is awesome - we did it twice, both ways.
