    my husband and I had one of our first dates! If you go farther along shore towards Frisco, we hung out one afternoon and fished.

    I love Lake Dillon. I stopped on the Dillon (town) side on my way back from Denver a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't this full, but still lots of snow on the peaks.  It's nice to see it filling up.

      your first date! Yes, they said it filled up rather recently and quickly...I love the Lake we hike/bike around it alot, if I am going to an from Silverthorne, I always drive the Dillon Dam Rd. There is still quite a bit of snow up on Peak 8..the lobster claws and the whale are visible..there was a heart earlier but its now gone..

        got the perfect spot!  That whole dam road has memories for our family.  When we were kids we'd go up there and camp in a big canvas tent, and my dad would fish and my mom would sit in the shade and read. We'd run all over the woods and play.

        Then when Mr. Light and I moved there, we'd hike to old Dillon Reservoir or go down the Roberts tunnel road, over by Corinthian Hills. I would hike around that peninsula with the old husky we had. There are a ton of old logging roads up there and it was close to home but you could still get out into the woods! I saw a black coyote up there one morning.  He came out of the woods and saw us and ran back in. Beautiful!
