I traveled to Mt. Magazine here in Arkansas to photograph but when I arrived at the lodge low clouds were causing foggy conditions which reduced visibility. I could hardly see the Lodge because the fog was so thick. I decided to eat breakfast at the lodge and then drive off the mountain to Cove Lake.
Cove Lake is 160 acres and is at the bottom of Mt. Magazine on Hwy. 309. It is also in the Ozark National Forest.
The fog wasn’t to bad but rain had moved in. I decided to wait it out and then walk the trail around the lake. After about an hour the rain stopped and I got my gear and headed out on the trail. I came to a spot that I thought would make a great photo. I placed my camera on my tripod and when I was getting ready to take the photo it began raining. I got a couple of photos before packing my gear to head back to my pickup.
