Due to a higher chance of snowfall in the mountains on Christmas Day, we postponed our trip to today.
Last Christmas we turned around at mile 2.5 after spending hours swimming in fresh powder while breaking trail.
Snowshoes were working in overdrive from the car all the way to the our turnaround point at 2.5 miles.
Perhaps the best day of the year to visit the lake, as most people were probably just getting up and opening presents.
It’s been while since we’ve had a sunny and warm Sunday.
Our first time visiting this lake and we made it despite the amount of snow in the basin!
