Working at Mouses I frequently get asked about hikes to do in the area. One of the ones that I am always asked about is Blue Lakes Trail.
To be honest, I’ve basically avoided this trail. If everyone is asking about it, it must be overrun. (I’m not wrong, my friends saw over a hundred cars there a few weeks ago!)
I didn’t get a terribly early start but it was early enough that there wasn’t a ton of traffic on the trail. I could see why it was a big deal; the views are incredible and its steep but not insane.
Sprocket was out of his mind. He had hiked and there was a lake. And then there was another lake.
The thing we learned is that there aren’t any sticks at alpine lakes and that breaks dogs hearts.
I look forward to doing this again… but probably in the fall when we can have it to ourselves again.
