4-month summary of Smith and Bybee Lakes

Leave a comment

Back in October is when I decided to do this project. I decided to visit a place regularly and document the changes that take place over the year. Smith and Bybee Lakes is one of my favorite places to visit, since it is beautiful, a great way to enjoy nature in the middle of the city, and a great birdwatching location. I plan to visit once a month and photograph the images from the same spots each time.  Since it’s been 4 months now I felt like doing a summary photo collage to capture it all. This has been an exciting project for me. I look forward to the rest of the year.

There is a little gravel path that leads you down to a great viewing spot of Smith Lake.

There is a  nice little spot to look out over some water in between the two lakes:

There is a paved path that takes you through a cottonwood forest, and leads down to Bybee Lake:
