Fairfield Glade has several lakes, all of which are man-made.  One of the larger lakes is Lake Canterbury.  There are homes all along the shoreline, but it is still a pretty autumn scene, especially with a blue sky above the lake.

I got these pictures from a boat ramp used by fishermen.

Betsy and I were fortunate to have a visit with son Jeff and his wife Dawn in early June. We took them to Cumberland Mountain State Park to celebrate (belatedly) Jeff’s birthday. After a delicious lunch we walked along the shore of Byrd Lake to enjoy the beautiful day.

The lake was calm, almost mirror-like, and the reflections were absolutely beautiful. I got the picture above of the couple in the canoe as they were heading back to the boat rental dock.

Byrd Lake is man-made, formed by a dam. The dam and the stone seven-arch bridge carrying the road over it was constructed by the CCC. It is reported to be the largest masonry structure constructed by the CCC.

I didn’t get a picture of a reflection of my Beautiful Bride, but she looked so good that I can’t resist including this picture of her taken from a small fishing pier on the lake. The bridge over the dam (and its reflection) can be seen behind her.

As many of you know Betsy and I have been going to Mount Nebo in Arkansas for almost as long as we’ve been married.  We usually try to find some waterfalls to visit, but we visit other places that capture our interest as well.

Last year we met a man as we were coming back to the car after visiting a waterfall in Arkansas.  He recommended that we continue a little farther down the road to Dierks Lake.  We were glad we took him up on his suggestion.

Dierks Lake was formed by a dam across the Saline River.  We’ve been told that it’s noted for largemouth bass fishing, but we just enjoyed the beauty of the lake.
