Picnicked on the banks of Silver Lake. Decided to do one more short hike. Suppose it was short, 2.1 miles. But the increase in elevation was1300ft. We don't pick the easy ones. The trail in places was more suited to the nimble feet of a mountain goat than the hiking boot clad feet of human beings. Anyway we survived the ordeal. Just!
The reward was fantastic views over the surrounding mountains and lakes. Got up to Lake Agnew 8,503ft! Got the photo to prove it.
With aching feet, ankles, knees and hips we returned home to a well deserved glass of wine!
