Take pictures of the rock and enjoy a day at Lower Bonnie or Ravine Lake.
Before moving back to Alaska, I saw a picture of this rock and knew I had to see it. So this past summer I made the trek to Bonnie Lake.
Bonnie Lakes Road in Alaska is a fun 2-mile road with a great painted rock. At the end of the road, you find a great spot to fish or have a lakeside picnic.
