Close enough to the road for families with small children, small enough to retain warmth from the summer sun, and large enough for several campsites, Independence Lake was named for a nearby nineteenth-century mining claim. One August, my delighted children swam all afternoon, disappointed only that we had not brought camping gear so that we could stay overnight.
