Hike to Lake Blanche

4th of July weekend we decided to hike to Lake Blanche. Because of the heat, we got to the trailhead at 6:30am. Early early. Getting started on the hike, still in great spirits, but Wyatt was tired. He kept looking at me like "mom, why am I not asleep in bed right now?"
Everything was so green and shaded on the way up.

Wyatt was such a trooper in his backpack. He kept sticking his right arm straight out to grab the leaves off of the trees. No luck:)

It wasn't an easy hike.

But the end was beautiful.

The last 1/4 of the hike, Wyatt got really tired and fussy. So his daddy carried him in his arms until he fell asleep. What a good daddy.

This is Lake Blanche. Next to it (below) are Lake Lillian and Lake Florence.

We stopped for a lunch/snack break and then headed back down. It was hot and sunny the whole way down. Blek! We were so tired that it took longer to go back down then it was to come up! It was exhausting, but such a pretty destination. Just wish it wasn't so hot hiking back down. We were all ready to be done and back in the car :)
