Lake Alpine-Inspiration Point

Got to a saddle and was faced with steep scree to get to the very top. Good views from where I stopped but not easy if you keep going

wife and I did it yesterday starting from Alpine Lake boat ramp. Beautiful scenery easy going. I'm in a arm sling recovering from surgery and was able to climb easily enough. The trail does get a bit steep at summit. If your in poor physical shape as we seem to be you'll need to take a break or two, or three.
