It was a crisp day that reminded us that Fall is here. It had been raining like crazy recently and the trail conditions were muddy. This is a wet area as it is, but with the added rain it was mud on top of mud. It was a bit of a grind jumping back and forth trying to avoid the mud, but we eventually ended up at Ring Lake and enjoyed the view with a fresh cover of snow
Lots of little lakes and still lots of overripe blueberries on our hike in. Just before the lodge the scenery started to open up and we were surrounded by snow covered peaks as we made our way through large open meadows towards Ring Lake.
