The normally busy "day use" area was vacated just before we arrived at Surprise Lake. So naturally, we took over and spread out. The sun came out to join us, making it a most pleasant dining experience.

Surprise lake, in contrast to Trap Lake, is distinctly green, and relatively shallow. Though there were quite a few reasonable camp sites along the shore not far from the day use area, these were relatively small.

No, Seth was not overcome by a sudden attack of seasickness (as you can see, the waves really weren't so very big)! He just spotted something interesting down in the water between the large rocks.
