Gumbo's Pic of the Day, April 28, 2015: Kinbrook Island Provincial Park

 Kinbrook Island Provincial Park(1)

While visiting my daughter in Brooks this past weekend, I was impressed by the ocean-like waves I see in Kinbrook Island Provincial Park, on Lake Newell! To see such a large lake with beach and ocean-like waves on the relatively dry Alberta prairie is a big surprise to me.   Brooks is a little farming/oil/meat packing town just 2 hours driving east of Calgary.  The Park and lake is just at the outskirts of the town.  The town is also close enough for a day trip to the Dinosaur Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, about a 45-minute drive to the northeast.

I've seen so many beautiful lakes in Canada.

Mostly on photos.

Does this lake ever become cool or warm enough for a  skinny dip ?

Not that shorts keep you much warmer anyway !

I've not found one yet.
