Hiking up into the mountains did give us the advantage to see the lake from a different vantage point.
So folks...this is what a pile of bear poop looks like close up. Do you think they like berries?
On our hike, periodically we would come across small falls, creeks and rivers. Our feet were getting to the state where this looked pretty inviting.
I was just playing with the camera and I liked the way these trees framed this shot.
Waterfalls just seemed to appear out of nowhere.
Somewhere up there was our destination. Is it any wonder we didn't get to it?
Rickey, my backpack carrier looking very much like an experienced hiker!
Here you can see where we came from...behind Rick. Though we were tired, the beauty around us was energizing.
The circle indicates our target; the tunnel that would have eventually led us to Crypt Lake. It was not to be!
In the distance there are narrow waterfalls coming over the cliff in the middle. We could hear them for a long time and they weren't near to us at all.
Here is Rickey as we start to make our way back. The path becomes very narrow here.
More waterfalls! Though they aren't spectacular the sound of them and nothing else is pretty cool!
At this point the trail appears so easy and peaceful. Unfortunately, this part of the trail was shortlived!
There is Mr. Bear as he saunters away from us boring old humans!
