Radmila wanted to take a trip up north to see some fall color and get away for the weekend after the kids' fall break. I know she likes lakes and water, so I suggested Lynx Lake. I had been wanting to check this area out for a long time and I'm glad I finally got a chance to do it.

We left a little earlier than they're used to, but with the limited parking in this area, it seemed like a good idea. the parking wasn't actually too bad, but when we started there weren't too many people and by the time we were done, there were quite a few more.

the fall color was a somewhat limited, mostly shades of yellow and a bit of orange here and there. Still nice to see something, however. My weather app said it was 44 when we started, but it felt like a lot warmer than that. When we finished and had lunch in the shade, it did seem cooler.

we hiked counter clockwise around the lake, starting from the north shore. By the time we got back to the north end again, we decided to take the Johns Tank Trail out and back for a bit to add some mileage, and get away from the loud family hiking behind us whose kids where throwing rocks into the lake while singing/chanting kids' songs.

I stopped on the Johns Tank Trail just a little bit before its terminus. I didn't have a map so I didn't know it junctioned with Salida Gulch just another 0.1 mile or so ahead. that 0.1 mile was down a rather steep hill, and going down just to come back up didn't seem like much of an idea anyway.

Got back and had lunch at the picnic area and headed back to Phoenix. I-17 NB was backed up for several miles from the dreaded Black Canyon Devil's Corkscrew. Not sure if maybe there was an accident. Glad we started early.
