Byrd Lake

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Cumberland Mountain State Park near Crossville is not a large park, but it does contain a beautiful lake, Byrd Lake.  One of our favorite activities at the park is to have a delicious buffet at the restaurant overlooking this lake.

That seems like a very lovely place for a buffet. My cancer has led me to a whole new eating style aalong with the other stuff to get better. Thanks for the prayers and I also very much love your flower pics. I am impressed at the variety you find to plant and care for.That too is a feast for my eyes.

Hi George, this is a great photo. I would love to sit next to that scene for a while and it would be lovely to enjoy the buffet along the view.
