The narrow dirt road to the reservoir rattled our nerves, especially in the winding turns in the shaded spots on the cliff still covered in ice. Slowly and steadily, we made our way to the cliffs over the water. We opted to park when we found a wide spot in the road wide enough to turn around and to park. We had had enough of the two way traffic on the sometimes one lane road hanging on the cliffside. We decided to quit while we were ahead, and we opted to walk the last couple of kilometers to a popular, rocky beach. In retrospect, we could have driven. All the difficult spots were behind us.
Visiting the reservoir is fairly easy and straightforward. However, rounding a narrow hairpin curve on a cliff and meeting a tourbus head on will get anyone’s heart rate elevated.
Here’s a video of our drive up the road and our time walking around the lake.
