Silverwood Lake is located on the west fork of the Mojave River in the San Bernardino Mountains near the city of Hesperia, CA. It was one Saturday when my husband and his friends at work decided to hang out at the lake and do some water skiing. One of his friends owns a cool boat which is excellent for high-speed maneuvers and since I’ve never been to that place or even be in a speed boat, I decided to come along (I was invited by the way =p).
The Silverwood Lake is known to be the highest reservoir in the State Water Project more specifically in San Bernardino County. Other than water skiing, the Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area also features scenic hiking trails (short or long hikes), fishing, has picnic area, camping, and swimming beaches.
The boys are having so much fun starting from tubing, to wake-boarding and lastly this weird looking wake-board with some sort of extension that lifts you higher as you keep your equilibrium. This one was quite hard to keep up and they kept plunging into the water, they love it so much. They end up being sore the next day though. Lol!
As for me, I was the official photographer of the day. The fact that I can’t swim and not the least bit of interest in learning how to, I wouldn’t even dare to try even if I was wearing a life vest. I was fine with my chips and drinks munching away while taking photos of the water sports hopefuls.
