Fancy a visit to Loch Lomond? There’s no need to go all the way to Scotland because we have our very own Loch Lomond right here in California. Less than an hour away from San Jose near the small town of Lompico, the Loch is actually a reservoir open to boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking (but no swimming). My friends and I arrived there Monday after work and the sun on the water and trees was perfect for photos. We walked a little around the lake and did a bit of fishing with two bites but no catches. There are a lot of really nice picnic areas with bbq grills and tables so I will have to go back someday for a picnic with more friends and more food. It was pretty deserted on Monday but I imagine the weekends could be a bit more busy.
