Mountain views and solitude are what you will find at Bowman Lake. The lake was first created by the damming of Canyon Creek as far back as 1868 and named after James F. Bowman, a settler from Scotland. Not many visitors venture to the lake, which probably is because of the rough and rocky forest road you must take to get there. But if you are willing (and have a 4 wheel drive vehicle), you will definitely be rewarded. (Tahoe National Forest, California, USA)
