Twin Lakes

We returned to Silver Lake to hike to Twin Lake. This time we took the Aerins (Aaron and Erin), Logan's betrothed - Acelin, Brandi and her niece. Man did this hike suck. It's only a mile long but you climb 1200 feet which would make the entire hike uphill. I actually hated going down more than going up because the trail is covered in rocks. The lake was pretty but I didn't see it's twin anywhere. We also walked around the lake hoping there was the other lake but nope it's just a bad name for the lake. It was pretty while we were up there but there are a lot easier hikes to go on to see a pretty lake.

This is only a 1/4 of the way up and look how far above Silver Lake we all ready are. It was seriously straight below us.
Here's the whole gang at Twin Lakes.

The dads that had to carry the kids.
How cute is this? Logan fell asleep on the way down. I don't blame him, I was exhausted too.

So, I take it that it was a steep hike? We'll have to try it out next year. We're always looking for a good hike.

Thanks for letting me tag along, and THANKS for putting up with Payton. It was so fun for me to have her there and to see her enjoy the hike so much. She is still talking about it and is so proud that she hiked "all the way around the HUGE lake and didn't fall once!" Tell Tad thanks for all he did to entertain her too. When can we go again? :)
