A. and I got out hiking this weekend. We hiked to Gibson Lake, which sits at about 12,000 feet. Some photos:






The hike in ended up being a little longer than we expected. We dropped our packs just below treeline, then finished the hike (though some snow) up to the lake. I caught a brook trout (on a fly line, no less) for dinner. Some weather moved in, and we headed below treeline for dinner. The heavy weather moved around us, and the next morning we hiked back up to the lake (one more trout) before heading back to the car, and then back to town for the essentials (Diet Coke for her and ice cream for me).
