Driving home from Balance Rock State Park, I happened upon Lake Onota   This is what is so great about New England, and really any area of the country.  You can find the most beautiful places at the most unexpected moments.

A popular fishing spot, Lake Onota is a 617 acre pond located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.  It flows into the Housatonic River which eventually drains into Long Island Sound.  Fishermen and women and boaters flock to Lake Onota for the bass, trout, walleye and crappie (yes they even fish for crappie fish).  

A roadway bisects the lake.  Of course, typical of New England weather, while it was very cloudy on one side, the other side had nary a cloud.

Dogs like Lake Onota as well.  I met Becca, a happy 9 year old golden retriever,there.
