Later, as I was going by one of the lakes (hence the name--Cascade Lakes Hwy.), I noticed a flock of white pelicans on the lake. I knew they were pelicans, because I had seen them at Willow Lake. They are much prettier than the brown pelicans.
I arrived at Lava Lake campground shortly after 12:30 (could have slept longer). I changed out of my bike clothes and into my swimsuit. I went down to the lake and went for a short swim. Lava Lake is more of a fishing lake than a swimming lake, but since there are no showers here, (oh, I could go pay $5 and have a shower at the resort but...no) the dip in the lake was good until later, when I was in the camp store and I heard the gal say there were leeches in the lake! Fortunately, I just did a short dip. Just what I need to compliment all the mosquito bites on my legs, a leech!
Speaking of Mosquitos, they are not as bad here as the last two nights. Also, I bought a Citronella candle. I don't know how great it works, but it can't hurt.
Tomorrow is another short day into Bend where I will stay with my cousin. Me thinks I will not set my alarm...
