Mount Beljica 8.3.12

Saturday, August 04, 2012

We picked Mt. Beljica today. It's a short (4 miles RT) but steep trail that passes a lovely lake halfway up. The view from the top was amazing! We stayed up there wandering around, taking pictures and just enjoying the views for a couple of hours. Mount Rainier was the star but we also could see Adams, Hood, St. Helens and some of the other places we have hiked to. On the way down I took off my shirt and shorts and went for a swim in Lake Christine. There was nobody else around. We saw just two people all day. It doesn't get any better that this day!

    I'm wondering what you wore down from the lake. You were all wet, did you have a towel? Then you must have frozen on the hike back down from there with all that snow!

Looks like fun anyway. Those mountain lakes never warm up, even in the dead of August when it get's hot! I think there's a huge pile of perma frost at the bottom of those lakes - oh yeah! It's snow meltoff that fills those lakes!

Thanks for the pictures! emoticon
