Day 4: 24 Miles
We finally got some sun! It was a cold and clear night last night, and a cold and clear day today. We both had a little extra pep in our step with the nice weather today. We saw tons of people today. Mostly mountain bikers, but also day hikers and a backpacker or two. We climbed over the highest point on the trail today, a little over 10,200 feet. There was still a little snow on the ground, but we kept our feet dry. We planned to go another mile or two today, but we came upon a nice spot with a great view of the lake, and decided to stop early and enjoy it.
