We left the East Springfield Albertsons at 8:30. There was a little
ice and packed snow on the road, but nothing too hazardous. We parked
at Ikenick Sno-park and were on the trail by 10:30. After following the
road down to Clear Lake Lodge, we turned right to go around the lake in
a counterclockwise direction. The sun came out a little after 11:00 and
there wasn't a breath of wind all day. We basked in sunshine while
eating lunch on the lava field on the east side. It was fun trying to
identify the many animal tracks. One was that of a coyote. We continued
on past Great Spring, around to the lodge, then back up to the cars.
