This is the beach at Beals Point within Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. View looking eastward across the lake toward El Dorado County. The lake is about 3/4 full, so was probably taken in the springtime. This is a good beach for families and children because of the clean granitic sand and the gentle slope of the beach.
