April 27, 2022 - Wednesday - Today we drove to Lake Fulmor in Riverside County on the road to Idyllwild, CA.  It is a small artificial lake formed by an earthen dam on Indian Creek in the San Jacinto Mountains.  Lake Fulmor was formed in 1947 and filled in 1948 by the US Forest Service.  The lake was named after A. C. Fulmor in 1949.  We drove to an elevation of over 5,000 feet to get to it, and when we got there, we had the place to ourselves.

In 1980, the US Forest Service planted a giant sequoia sapling in the picnic area on the northern shore of Lake Fulmor.  The tree has since propagated into an entire grove of giant sequoias collectively referred to as the Lake Fulmor Grove.  It is one of only two artificial giant sequoia groves known to be propagating free of human intervention, the other being Black Mountain Grove located at the head of Indian Creek.

There are picnic tables and barbecues scattered all around the park.

All we could hear were birds in the forest and ducks splash landing in the water.

It was a very quiet and serene atmosphere, we loved it.

Today we took our own lunches with us and ate at a sun drenched table.
