After the trek up the road we got to the actual trail. It was like walking upstairs for a mile if the stairs were irregularly shaped and slippery. It was about 50 degrees when we started climbing on the road and about 35 degrees when we started walking up the trail. Eventually Stephen and I made it to this little Nook in the mountain and realized Jaime and Garrett were about a quarter mile behind us, smoking had really done a number on them. On our way up we encountered sheep, this little hole in the wall, and a plaque with a story of the lake at top. Apparently if you jump in you come out an old man.
