US Lakes > California > Fresno County > Rainbow Lake
|| ||We came to Rainbow Lake to see Sierra's wonderland.|
With tents and spikes and bags and packs so we could build a camp.
Confident in promises from guides and almanacs, ''It Never Rains Up Here''
Even Tuesday's little hail-storm.
Seemed a fun thing and we stayed warm.
Elements we knew were no harm, ''It Never Rains Up Here. ''
Then Thursday afternoon the bubble burst both loud and strong.
The sky above us let us know that Noah wasn't wrong.
once without a doubt the wet and shivering throng,|
Found out, ''It Rains Up here!''
Tents and sleeping bags were floating.
To the lake our camp went boating.
But we'll tell the next group in our gloating,
|Rains Up Here!'' Says Tune of Battle Hymn o'Rep.|
Rainbow lake, as well as numerous other lakes in the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness Area are well worth the moderate effort it takes to visit. Rainbow lake itself is cupped between a low granite ridge and a steeper, curving granite wall. It is a beautifully clear lake populated with large numbers of rainbow trout which I assume gave it the name. Information, registration, and restrictions can all be obtained
at the Ranger station located in the town of Prather. We camp at this lake at least twice a year, and it is always one of my favorites. Says Paul|
