This is a very nice route to hike. It'll probably be even more stunning in a couple weeks as the spring bloom progresses. The history and geology along the way stimulate the imagination to the point of distraction from the length of the hike. I didn't feel like I was ready for it to end when we crested the hill and could see the lake.

The arch in the area where the arrow heads were made was incredible. My eyes were drawn to something else when we first got there, and while I was looking at that, the hair on my neck began to tingle. I felt an energy behind me, and turned to see that arch. My pack felt heavy still from all the water in it, but when I went to examine the arch, something happened. Suddenly it felt as if I had lost about 3 bottles of water, as the weight of my pack lessened when I touched the rock. Yes, it was bizarre. I kept checking my water bottles the rest of the trip because my pack felt so light it seemed they must be drained. I have no explaination. It just happened.

Many thanks to our intrepid guide, AZLOT69.
