A perfect day for a hike!
Rain the night before settled the dust and scattered clouds during the day
kept the temperature down.
A pleasant one-hour walk through old growth fir and hemlock with an understory
of maple, rhododendron and huckleberry brought us to the edge of the lake.
From there on, as we worked our way to the stream inlet, it was up and over
as we encountered many downed trees across the trail.
Some chose to relax at the lake and have lunch, others explored the stream.
A more adventurous group worked their way up to a spectacular lunch spot
overlooking Linton Falls — a steep climb up, but definitely worth the effort.
We regrouped and returned to the cars after a most satisfying day.
