Cabin by the Lake~

Lake Isabella is at the southern terminus of The Sierra Nevada Mountain range in California.


The drive to the lake from Southern California takes you through the Mojave Desert where the distinctive Joshua Trees grow enmass at higher elevations.

This was our wonderful rental cabin near the lake.

Lake Isabella is in the high desert at the confluence of the north and south forks of the beautiful Kern River.

The lake sits at the southern entrance to Sequoia National Forest allowing access to both the eastern and western Sierra.

Lake Isabella is especially peaceful and empty in late fall. Cheers to you from scenic Lake Isabella~

  1. Bonjour Mon Amie CINDY

    Plusieurs personnes entrent dans nos vies
    Certaines pour y rester et d’autres ne font que passer
    Quoi qu’il en soit, elles resteront gravées dans nos mémoires
    Laissant une marque ou une cicatrice dans notre cœur ou une trace de leur passage

    Des portes se ferment, des cœurs se referment au fil des jours
    On ne sait jamais si c’est le hasard, le destin, la chance ou le malheur
    qui mettent ces personnes sur nos chemins
    On sait toujours ce qu’on perd, mais jamais ce qu’on gagne

    Mais le destin suit saroute
    Je te souhaite une excellente et une très bonne journée ou soirée
    Bisous.Bernard

  2. These are beautiful photos, Cindy! Guess what? We were in San Diego recently and visited the Free Flight Bird Sanctuary. Your recent photos inspired us to go and we were caotivated by the birds and their unique personalities. We played peek a boo with Baby Bird and marveled at the alarms they all gave about a hawk in the trees across the street. They are sooo observant! Thanks for showing and telling about this amazing place!

    • Oh my gosh!!! I would have met you there! But, I am so glad you went and enjoyed the birds and the amazing people who run and volunteer at the place. Makes me happy to imagine you making friends with those outgoing birds. Blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family and thank you for letting me know of your experience. You make me happy that I posted ❤

  3. I have memories of Lake Isabella from 30 years ago… during a period when I refused to take a camera anywhere.. don’t ask. So happy to see these photos!

    • I won’t ask. But I want to. I took cameras everywhere over my lifetime, the disposable kind you used to be able to buy at drugstores, and throw away. It was my husband, with his expensive camera, who said to me, less than ten years ago, that my photos, taken with that $8 camera were better than his. It took that to get my attention. I basically didn’t know I could see.

  4. Lake Isabella – I haven’t heard those words for decades. My driver’s education teacher’s wife was killed there when she stood up in a boat and was struck by a submerged tree limb. I have been there many times. Thanks for bringing back some memories (good and bad).
