Alanna was game for another hiking adventure. i gave her a few options of where to go and let her pick. it was not where i had planned on going originally but plans change sometimes. i had planned on leaving at 4am but ali asked for 3am, i compromised. she said she wanted to be up there for some sunrise photos. we got up there in time for some sunrise photos but we werent in very good position where we were at. the search & rescue, sheriffs dept and volunteers had the trailhead blocked off to any further traffic due to an older man who had been missing for a few days so we had to park down the road a little ways. we finally left the jeep a little after six am and didnt get back to the jeep till almost 3pm.in that 8 and a half hours in the mountains we hiked to five different lakes and fished 3 of them. once again the fishing sucked though and the people traffic was heavy. as always it was still a good day.
