If there is one nearby place that is a treat to the soul to visit, that, to me, is often overlooked by folks, it's Pyramid Lake. Pyramid is a remnant of ancient Lake Lahontan and radiates a sense of beauty, tranquility and awe.

Factoid: Pyramid Lake upports one of the highest breeding colonies of American white pelicans in the western united states.

Pyramid Lake is overseen by the Paiute Tribe. Having gone to grade school with Paiute children, I experienced firsthand the sacredness of Pyramid to the Tribe through myths, tales and traditions.

If you get the change to visit Pyramid Lake, besides the incredible hiking and biking available in the vacinity, be sure to check out the Tribe's Museum, it's filled with neat exhibits that highlight the Lake and Tribe's cultural history in good depth.

Reader: is there a place near you that you particularly enjoy to visit and connect with, like I do with Pyramid Lake?
