Morning Photo: Lake Hill

A go-to spot


Spring sunrise over Dillon Reservoir.

FRISCO — With all the magnificent, craggy peaks in Summit County, Lake Hill isn’t really all that big of a deal — a small, nondescript bump in the landscape between Frisco and Dillon, marking a local divide of sorts familiar to anyone making the daily commute around Summit County. But even if it’s not the biggest summit around, it does offer some impressive vistas of Dillon Reservoir and the surrounding ranges and, based on my photo archives, a great spot to watch cloud formations develop over the high terrain. I’ve had the pleasure of watching some amazing sunrises and sunsets from the overlook along the trail to Old Dillon Reservoir. It’s become a go-to spot for a quick jaunt when the light is looking promising. Here are a few of the best shots from that location the past few months, dating back to last spring.

We have a great selection of Summit County photos at our online FineArt America gallery.
