My girlfriend and I brought one of our friends here. He hadn't been hiking in years, and we figured this was a good starting point for him with some nice scenery. Completely overcast when we got there around 10:45am, and looked like it was probably gonna rain. Not a lot of people at the TH. It was pretty breezy, making for some nice little waves on the lake. The sound of the water was immediately calming.

We ran across quite a few people along the first mile of the trail, but we saw pretty much no one after that point. I guess most people don't actually finish this trail. We saw several falcons and bald eagles. Hard to get good photos of them with the bad lighting. It sprinkled on us a few times throughout the hike, but it never really rained. It was a great day out there. This was a pretty good workout for our friend, but I think he had a good time. Hopefully I can get him to come hiking with us more often.
