Elk Lake Camping Trip!

We went to Elk Lake this past weekend with James, Ana, Carrie & Jamil. It was the perfect weekend.

Friday Night:
We started hiking at about 10:00. Got past the washout and hit another washout. It was a doozy. We couldn’t find the right road and decided to set up camp where we were and wait till morning to get to the lake. We camped in the dirt road on top of hay bails. Yay!

Saturday:
In the morning we packed up and hiked a couple more miles and reached Elk Lake. We set up camp and enjoyed our day. We cooked a chicken above our fire, caught and cooked a handful of fish, knit a scarf, and hiked around.

Sunday:
We took a hike along the river bed. It has rocks covered in dead black moss that’s like a black carpet. We found some pools with trout and all sorts of exciting stuff. This hike was very fun and a bit grueling. When we got back to camp we packed up our stuff, and hiked uphill about 4+ miles back to the cars. It was a wonderful, tiring trip.
