Earlier this year, on January 1st, we went for a hike up to the Mills Lake. My daughter brought her skates with her and had pretty perfect skate experience on this alpine lake. As much as you can have such experience, with all the little cracks and crevices, and with ice making those weird noises… It was a perfect way to start a new year!
Yesterday I went up to the Black Lake. Had lunch and then decided to go up to the Frozen Lake. It’s like probably another couple thousand feet in altitude gain. On the way back you get this fabulous view of Black Lake right under you. Check my short video descending down to it
Fresh one from a hike earlier today. Went almost all the way to the Frozen Lake, it’s probably another 3 or so miles from this spot, straight up there in the mountains. On the way you have to pass the Mills Lake. All under good solid ice right now.
