Crossing Humpback


Woo hoo! A half mile loop through second growth forest within earshot of the freeway. Oh, well. They can't all be massive off-trail adventures.

The kids had a blast, though. The heat was a touch oppressive, but in the trees it wasn't that bad. On the bridges across Humpback Creek it was almost chilly. The creek flows out of Annette Lake and up there it's still full of snow. Tokul wasn't a fan of the bridge, though, so we hurried across.

Unlike other trips with the girls I wasn't worried about them drinking all their water or eating all their snacks. As a result we stopped early and often. We did a lot of plant identification and Lilly's catching up with Clara. Even though it's only a couple hundred feet higher than home the flowers are a couple of months behind.

It was also the first trip off-road (for all of about a quarter mile) for the Pilot. It did a heck of a lot better than the last time we were up here so I was satisfied.

In all, we did about half a mile with maybe 100 feet of gain and we were home for lunch and naps. What could be better?
