Today’s adventure took me up to the trail into Bennett and Middle Lakes. I did not stop at Bennett, it’s off the main trail a bit, but just continued on up to Middle Lake. There were many wet open spots along the way as well as water just streaming along in the trail. I stayed out of those spots by snowshoeing around them. Past the trail junction to Bennett Lake someone had barebooted and postholed for a bit until they must have decided that it was too much work and turned around. Snow was getting softer when I left the lake and headed back to the truck. 5 miles r/t with an elevation gain of about 670 feet.
