Beautiful day for a hike. The last push up to the lake is steep, overgrown and a tough slog. But the lake is nice and water felt great. On a hot day like today you don't want to be doing at last leg right around noon. Glad we stuck with it and made it to the lake. One group was there swimming when we arrived but no one else showed up while we had lunch. Going back down wasn't much faster but we made. The rest of the trail is pretty tame and while there are some stretches out in the hot sun, there were good stretches of nice shade as well. Berries were starting to get ripe and the few I tried were pretty tasty. And yes, there even some signs of fall foliage!
