We had lunch at the lake and headed back up the hill and to the yurt. At the yurt we started getting sprinkled on and some small hail, just enough to get the raingear out and put it on.
This was a nice enjoyable hike, not too hard but with lots of scenery and strawberries all over the place! On the road back we spotted a fawn that still had its spots and a family of grouse.
Doug is leading a hike tomorrow around Elwood pass and I am leading a hike Thursday to Fox mtn (and look for mushrooms too) making a loop.
