Mature trees and lush foliage surrounded the small lake. There were no signs identifying this lake, nor was its name on the many maps that appeared throughout the park.

Folks entered a tunnel on the other side of the lake. That tunnel led to the rest of Golden Gate Park.

The lake was shallow and the water clear. That afternoon, no fish were visible, but a lone rock rose from the bed.

Beyond the lake a temporary fence blocked the hillside which was undergoing repair. The orange fencing was reflected on the surface of the lake.

The lone duck was a male mallard who floated on water that reflected blue sky.

Not A Tunnel

The tunnel on the other side of the lake was not really a tunnel. Technically, it was called Alvord Bridge and supported the roadway atop it. The tunnel was the void below the bridge.

The lake with a lawn beyond, was decorated with purple flowers. Beyond the lawn was the eastern entrance to Golden Gate Park. In the distance, a dog stood on the lawn and waited for its human friend to join it.
