Bellas Lake Fun!
This year we thought it would be fun to go to a different lake. We couldn't take the motorbikes up the trail and I wasn't sure we would make it with the kids walking but we agreed to take the challenge. I think it ended up being about 5 miles both ways. Sweet Larry told us it would only be about 3 miles when we started. The trip up took a long time since it was all mostly uphill. Everytime I thought we were getting close another hill would present itself. Carlee had to be carried the whole way and Collin had to be carried quite a bit too. (He's heavy! Thank goodness Eric and Larry are strong.)
We left camp at 12:00 and didn't make it up there until after 2:30. The lake was beautiful despite the hazy smoke in the area. I wish I got better pictures of it but I was too tired and forgot to take an overview picture of the lake.
I had alot of fun. I love hiking and don't get the chance very often to go so even though I was tired and achy I loved it. I hope we'll go up to another lake next year. I love to see new places!
