I don’t know how many times Mother has said, “Turn here and go back to look at Elk’s Lake.” I’m usually on the way to someplace important like Wib’s BBQ, so I drive right past it.
On this day, though, I heeded her directions to turn off on Limbaugh Lane, just past North County Park. (It’s a right turn, not surprisingly.) After a few twists and turns, Limbaugh Lane becomes Elk Lane.
It passes Elk Lodge #639, then goes down and curves past a baseball diamond. The road is marked 10 mph, by the way.
When the view opens up, you get a whole bunch of beautiful views of Elk’s Lake.
Guess I should have listened to her years ago.
