Today we get our packs together for a long day hike.
We start at Circle Park Trailhead which connects to the Sherd Lake trails. This hike will take us pass several lakes. The original plan was to make the loop but we decided to change the plan to continue to Willow Lake and then return to the trailhead. Our planned 10 mile hike became a 9 mile hike with more elevation change. The original hike was to under 9400 feet but our change made that over 9600 feet.
We got a surprise on the first part of the hike. Goats! Pack goats!
Moving from the Forest to the Wilderness.
A gate to separate the wilderness from the forest.
Pretty hike with several lakes and a lots of really nice views.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
