Nada Lake is clear and pristine.
We tried to stay on goat alert, but towards the bottom of the trail we thought we were done with them. All of the sudden Cameron told me to look up and a mother and her twins were standing three feet away looking at me. It was both scary and exciting. My heart wanted to whip out my camera, but my brain told me to get out of their way fast.
At the lake, we laid around on the rocks and soaked up the sunshine. We worked hard and applied generous amounts of bug spray so that we could enjoy this moment.
Snow Lake is next on our list of Alpine Lakes to tackle. It was only an additional 1.5 miles up the trail, but unfortunately we were pressed for time and given the goat situation we were unsure how long it would take to get down. All in all, we were able to hike almost 19 miles and enjoy two alpine lakes, I would say not too bad for a two day trip.
