Surprise Lake

Our day started out gloriously enough with a beautiful sunrise.  We had decided to hike up to Surprise Lake which was rated a 4 out of 5 in difficulty.  This day would prove to us that we may be getting too old for such shenanigans.

The hike started out not so pretty with the power lines.  This was the easiest part of the hike.

Up, up and up.

We hiked on an itty bitty part of the famous Pacific Crest Trail.

This is the part of the trail where it really ceased being fun for me.  It wasn’t just rocky.  We had to clamor up large boulders, and naturally I fell.

I had an elbow that matched my knee.  It doesn’t look too bad and at the time I was mostly mad because I tore my pants.  Good thing I married a man that is always prepared.  We had a first aid kit in our camelbak.

This was what we hiked to see, Surprise Lake.  Not sure it was worth all the effort, blood and sweat that it took to get here.  By the time we got there I had exerted myself to the point that I seriously thought I was going to vomit.  For me, going back down the mountain was an easier enterprise.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
