Today was a beautiful day for hiking … I decided to hike up Snowy Mountain, just shy of being a 4000 footer. 7.5 miles round trip, crazy steep for the last half mile.

Indian Lake … Puffer Mountain and pond, Chimney Mountain in the distance. We’ve hiked them before.

Looking to the north, high peaks in the far distance.

Looking southeast with the southern end of Indian Lake and Lewey Lake.

this is a shot of trail going down from the top … lots of running water, wet rock, and although you can’t really see it, steep.
