In essence:  

Spooner Lake is located approximately 7 miles above Carson City on highway 50 just past the summit.

Turn right onto highway 28. The entrance to Spooner State Park is about 1 mile away.

· You will have to go through the entrance; it costs about five dollars to enter.

· You will see parking and picnic tables as you go through.

.  We will meet at the Visitors' Center.

The walk is 2 miles; flat and level around the lake. 

This is a lovely walk with wildflowers, pine trees and the beautiful lake. We can converse in both French and English.

After the walk we will have a picnic under pine trees with a mountain breeze.

Bring what you would like to eat and drink.

We look forward to seeing you for this  leisurely summer outing at Spooner Lake.
