I was at Round Top for the first time a couple of weeks ago, camped at Round Top Lake. A little crowded as the weekend rolled around, but real nice. Here are some shots:
Forgive me for being redundant, I also dropped this in the Ski thread. Looking forward to some snow up there on my next trip.
There are a couple of shots of Woods Lake at the end of the set. I had heard good things about it but wasn't knocked out. It felt a little claustrophobic after a few days in the high country and the weather was coming in, that probably didn't help.
Kirkwood Lake sounds interesting - I want to take my girlfriend up there and we like walk-in sites. Thanks for the insight.
