|Doing a little reflecting on that reflection|

Though, you can't blame me for considering Juli when it comes to freezing temperatures. I've never met anyone who not only tolerates the cold like she does, but craves it. When we got out of the car at the trail head, she could not understand how I could be shivering in my 3 layers of coats and hats, because she was in heaven. But the only thing on my mind was, "Stay the night?!?! What the hell was I thinking?"
|This tree looked like a piece of art; like a curling ribbon!|
|I guess I think I'm some sort of photographer, ha ha|
Once on the trail, we came to a quaint little lake with one cute campsite (only a mile in) that made me flip flop again about wanting to backpack. (it helped that it was in the sun) If you have small kids, and a SUV of course, this would be a super easy intro to backpacking. I would want to make camp, then push on to Summit Lake for the day...but I'm not sure I would recommend that.
|Dang it! Where's my backpack!|

|The opposite side ridge view. Two views for one!|
|Just a little snow on the way up|
|I never touch up any of my pictures;|
but I just had to play with this one
|Thanks for letting me use some of your pics, Juli!|
You've inspired me that playing with them is a lot of fun!
