I hiked the Eagle Lake this time around and realized that I have not ever hiked the entire lake after all these years….hmmm….this is rather odd since I have kayaked and biked it more times than I can count…guess it is do to so many other places to hike that I did not ever get to it.
It was a less than perfect day but I got through almost the entire distance of 5.8 miles before it began to rain. I was so glad that I ventured out and it was the first morning hike that I have done. I carried thirty pounds and it went well, I am thinking I can add more weight to it but do not know the limit yet. I had mostly gear in my pack with water and a few snacks. This is becoming real and I can’t wait to really hit the trail.
