Another gloomy day over Otay Lakes

Otay Lakes on a gloomy day

We can all agree that there is nothing quite like spending a day at Otay Lakes – except when the weather isn’t cooperating. I remember one particularly gloomy day when the clouds hung low in the sky and the air was damp and chilly. It was a far cry from the sunny, warm days we usually enjoy during the summer months. While I was hiking with my wife I grabbed this shot of the mountains in the background. Just minutes before the clouds were covering the tip of the mountain.

Despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, the lake was still beautiful in its own way. The water was calm and glassy, reflecting the muted colors of the sky above. And while it wasn’t exactly beach weather, there were still plenty of people out enjoying the day – fishing, kayaking, or just taking a leisurely stroll along the shore. I love to come down to Otay Lakes and walk around or even just sit and take in the peacefulness.

I’m so ready for the sun to return to Chula Vista and we get that warm summer weather.
