During some further exploration up copper canyon, we found this beauty. Sherk Lake.
I've had this little lake marked out on my gps for a while now, but wasn't able to actually reach it until now. There are several possible routes, though most of them are completely grown in or have large washouts. The route we ended up taking was actually really easy going once you know where it is. I'm attaching our route straight from hillcrest near Duncan. The journey takes about 1.5 hours each way if you don't doddle, and you'll find lots of cool trails forking out along the way. The lake itself is beautiful, completely remote, warm, and stocked with rainbow trout (though I'm unsure of specific fishing regulations). There's even a little cobbled together mini dock made from some old concrete slabs.
Anyway, on to the pictures!
