Hume Lake June 26, 2010

Hume Lake is an 85 acre man-made lake in the Sequoia National Park. The altitude is 5200'. The lake is fed by the gorgeous Ten Mile Creek, and drains back to said creek over a unique concrete reinforced multiple arch dam. Surrounded by evergreens and sandy soiled, it reminds me of Maine. The drive to the lake is easy (in summer) and scenic; any trip into the Sequoia National Forest is worth it. I took video with an HD-Flip, and it is a bit jumpy (I was in a boat on a lake after all....). I have been going here on an annual camping trip for over 20 years and it is always fantastic.
