  Rhone-Alpes - Lake
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

We were already a little tired of mountain road when we have been arranged a green parking near picturesque lake. I don't know the name of this lake. Jean-Louis (JLBG) helped me and suggested the following.
"Lac du Sautet, near Corps, perhaps.
The three lakes of Laffrey (lac de Petichet, lac de Laffrey, lac Pierre-Chatel)
are unlikely." Thanks Jean-Louis!

Surrounded by green mountains, the lake had a very cut up and steep coast. I have taken advantage of the moment, and have quickly left from our group in a deserted place. Here I dived into the water. In spite of the fact that it was a mountain lake, water was warm enough. I have already a little weaned from bathing in fresh water, but felt huge pleasure.
