After I had driven north on scenic Route 445 I went over the top of a hill and Pyramid Lake was laid out before me:

The lake is huge, 188 square miles, and the surface is at an elevation of 3,796 feet.

As I drove around the southern tip from west to east I could see areas where people were camping or hanging out along the shore and many folks were in the water engaged in a variety of activities:
