The day warmed up and became quite pleasant, and soon we came to a signed junction. The trail we’d been following led to the right, another trail to the left. Faintly and straight ahead lay our route up to the lake, the faintest of trails leading the way. We continued on straight ahead and navigated a shallow river crossing, then began to follow steep, rocky switchbacks higher and higher past 10,500 feet. The air cooled a bit and the wind became stronger. Eventually we made it to the lake, or so I thought...

Changes on the trail and thoughts on why we're out there in the first place. How far is far enough? Read the full article below in Issue 5:
