|Lake O'Hara. Jan's new Canon takes really nice pics.|
We decided to head up the short hike to Lake McArthur, which is really the postcard lake! It was a lovely hike up with plenty of catching up and storytelling along the way.
|Lake McArthur. Even in the early afternoon it was calm,|
allowing for those signature reflections of mountains.
|Local wildlife boldly visited us at our rocky lunch spot.|
We returned with a couple of hours to spare before the last bus at 6:30 pm would take us back to the road. We joined our friends for "happy hour" by the lake (so civilized) and then sadly had to get on our way.
|Mountain goat. This was a mythical appearance on top|
of the cliff near McArthur Valley.
We started laughing; amazed that we had interpreted the road as flat in the morning, when it so clearly isn't. I usually have great dislike for things like head winds and uphills (go figure!). This time, though, I think the training of a week at GMC set even me up to motor on this uphill like it's nothing!
