Climbing to a Gem

Jewel Lake – Kaiser Wilderness

Another day of hiking this time was back into the Kaiser Wilderness. I have never been through the area in the fall and was in for a real treat. The temperatures were much cooler, the aspens were turning, and total solitude was at hand. Not another person was there that day. Both River and I had the whole eastern half of the wilderness to ourselves. The highlight was the last lake known as Jewel Lake. It is one of those gems you have to say “goodbye trail” and cross country your way to the top. Always worth it and looking back to where we came from, you could see for miles. This is yet another story I will have to catch up on!
