Some people wore runners and they soon regretted it when we walked through the wet marsh. All in all though, it was a great day for hiking, even though it was a bit cool. Mosquitoes only became a nuisance on our way down and we only got a light dusting of hail, which was lucky considering the amount of big storms in the area.
It was a bit windy and cold by lake but we decided to sit and eat lunch there with our hats and gloves on. We left when a storm seemed to be coming in. We usually hike up on the other side of the lake where you see the snow, but there was too much snow to hike up there safely.
