A loop of Lake Toya

Yesterday was another spectacular day of weather… well maybe in our little bubble at Toya! It seems, with all the snow and ominous weather, somehow Lake Toya was immune and as I guided a Groove Cycles group around Lake Toya we had everything from blue sky to rainbows!

Lake Toya is such an incredibly beautiful place and unique with it’s landscape of smoking volcanoes, lake islands and almost circular lake (10m x 9km). The tour took most of the afternoon as we cruised along, stopping all too regularly for photo opportunities… While I’m excited for winter I’m certainly going to miss summer… and spring…. and autumn!

Ducks are so cool.

Rainbow on the lake... Can anyone tell me if fish can see rainbow's so I can answer the questions of 6 year old's?
