Another great day in the mountains. Next time I hope to make it to Gem Lake.
Actually, my dog was supposed to be sitting next to me in this picture, but she really is a master at not doing what I ask her to do...next time I won't forget the treats.

First hike in a year I am not a huge fan of hikes, but Snow Lake was in my list since a long time. Twice before I had to return, because I either didn't have good snow shoes or we weren't ready for it. This time I wanted to make it no matter what! I Wore snow shoes but the snow had completely melted. After two hours, I started cribbing, the lake was no where to be seen and we felt like we have been hiking forever. Three hours later we got this first stunning view
Now that's a good perk for the effort, patience and perseverance! I definitely expected more from the end result, but the hike itself made everything worth it! It was fun, adventurous, beautiful and full of surprises( checkout my story). We were glad that we went early morning during sunrise as the traffic picked up after 9:00am. You start seeing a large number of groups hiking up the trail. The area near the lake is pretty small, so getting here early is the best option.
Hikes are fulfilling when the end result surprises you as much as getting there did and this was definitely one of them Any fun hikes you guys remember of?
It's only taken 26 years to realize there are all of these amazing views within an hour radius of home #pnw#adventuring#alpental
Snow Lake Sunset!
Exploring Alpental today - hiking is definitely my new favorite way to do cardio.
We didn’t hike super far up because it got a little hot for the big guy so we came down early to cool him off in a creek. Regardless, I’ve been here almost a month and I’m still in awe #alpental #pnw #washingtonstate
