I echo what Kyle tough_boots wrote.
Very cool hike. I missed out on doing Joe's hike, but this one more than made up for it. Great scenery, weather, and Kyle wasn't so bad either.

One of the more interesting things we experienced on this hike was Molly the mini-Chihuahua. We traveled counterclockwise around Knoll Lake (site of an old BC experience), and about 3/4 of the way around we heard some wahine yelling for her dog "Molly." I turned around, and this very small female Chihuahua dog was all over me. Or more correctly, my ankles. Then she showed some love to Kyle. I have eaten hero sandwiches that were bigger than this dog. Her owner soon showed up to take her back to her family's fishing spot.
However, Molly soon ran after us again about 1/4 mile later.

It was a good thing that we noticed Molly running after us before we were a good distance from the lake. I'm not sure what we would've done had we discovered her miles away from the lake. Gone back to the lake? Taken her home because Molly would've easily fit into one of our shorts' pockets. We saw an osprey alight right when Molly was running free so it was a happy ending to see her go home with her mommy who finally showed up with a little pink leash.
