Hiking up the long grade, the late morning sun is hotter at mid-slope than it was when we started down in the cool canyon bottom. Our lungs are working hard and our calves feel a slight burn from the steep climb. Our dog Sierra is looking for a shady spot to take a break. Finally we reach the top of the ridge. We look back down into the beautiful granite canyon below, but only briefly. The trail bends into a thick stand of shady red fir offering relief from the heat. So we press on.
After a short walk through the trees, we break out on to the shore of a beautiful high-elevation lake. On one end of the lake damselflies flutter over grassy shallows. Most of the lake is bordered by a dense stand of lodgepole pine that grows right down to the water line. Little yellow pollen rings show where the high water sometimes engulfs the shoreline trees. On the far side of the lake a granite cliff juts upward from the lake reaching nearly a hundred feet into the air.
