Pine Creek

Crazy Peak got the best of me last week.  That was definitively not going to happen this time around.  Time to head back to the top of the world and hike up to Pine Creek Lake, followed by summiting Black Mountain.  10,941 feet.  Not much to say about the hike that pictures cannot more judiciously describe.

Sometimes it is great to just walk and let your mind run.  Today was one of those days.


Waterfall on the approach to the lake.


A baby lake in between the lake and waterfall.  Black Mountain lies in the background, obscured by clouds.  I imagine this is what hiking in Scotland would look like.


Finally, the clouds broke as I got to the lake.  Time for a sunshine nap for rest and warmth-it was quite chilly-before ascending to the peak (right hand corner of this photo).



Victory amongst the clouds.
