On Saturday we decided to head up the canyon and hike the Lake Blanche trail. I was glad that Jeremy made this suggestion because we haven't been hiking at all this year and it was good to get out and enjoy the mountains. Plus, we will be hiking the Subway again this year in about a month and I needed to be reminded of how hard hiking can be. This hike kicked my trash!!! I was SO sore on Sunday. Jeremy wore huge blisters into his heals and didn't complain about it once on the hike. If that had been me I would have sat on the trail and cried and demanded to be carried down the hill. Luckily he didn't do that!
We started hiking around 8 and I was glad we got up early to beat the heat because on the way down the mountain it was pretty hot and I was glad we weren't hiking uphill. The lake was beautiful, as were the mountain views. We had lunch at the top and then hiked down. It was really nice because we were done around 1 and still had the rest of the day to relax. It was a great Saturday activity.
