It was quite cold, foggy and drizzly when we arrived, but it wasn't too bad once we started walking. We followed a trail around the lake and then hiked up another trail to Stonewall Mine. This was a good starter hike for me. I was able to get a healthy dose of crisp mountain air, colorful autumn landscapes, wildlife, photography, and exercise. After about three hours, I was more than ready to hop back in my car, turn on the heated seats, and come home to Trapper and a steamy bowl of ham and bean soup. Thanks for the soup, mom! Here are a few photos from the day, but you can see the album on Newf in My Soup's Facebook page, here.
