    Andy Brough reviewed Lake Blanche Trail

    11 months ago

    I did this when I was maybe a bit out of shape. The top of the trail was great. The entire hike was a bit difficult for me.
    I'll be trying again soon, maybe I'll enjoy it more next time.
    Look out for snakes.

    Andy Brough reviewed Desolation Trail to Salt Lake Overlook

    11 months ago

    We arrived at 6:30 am on Saturday, sept 24th. It was still dark and it was threatening to rain.
    The trail was quiet, and venturing into the darkness was exciting.
    Trail markers guide the way for the first leg of the journey, and when they stop, following the switchbacks (instead of the small off-shoots) is important.
    The trail is steep enough to get your heart pumping. Despite the sky trying to rain, taking my jacket off happened quick.
    As we ventured higher, the sun started to rise. We were still in the clouds, but the light was enough to turn off our lanterns.
    As we gained elevation and entered the mist, the rain started.
    The wind at the top was strong, but the views were amazing. We were high enough to see everything, but the clouds were still blocking most of the landscape.
    The sharp rock formations at the top are great for picture taking and climbing around on.

    Returning to the car seemed much faster, but the rain started pouring harder as well. My flannel and my pants were soaked through.

    This was exactly what I wanted my Saturday to be like.

    Great place for a walk, with or without a dog.
    Go there expecting off leash dogs. Don't be surprised about aggressive breeds and high energy dogs.
    They'll be wet and loud.
