Hiking 2:00:00  6.5 mi (18:28 / mi) +200m 16:51 / mi
Hiking with Sam, Presto, Vince, Louise, Monika, Alex, Jens, and Ingrid at Lake Alpine! We had a lab retreat up near Bear Valley this weekend, so we set out with the gang to try for some snowshoeing. CA is having kind of a miserable winter, so there wasn't much in the way of snow. Some people still stubbornly attempted to snowshoe. Unfortunately, the snowshoes started bothering my hip almost immediately, so I took advantage of the extremely light snow cover and just hiked.
We parked at the snow park and hiked along the road to Lake Alpine, looped around the lake, and headed up to Inspiration point. It was fun to hang out with everyone, and Presto got lots of yummy treats at the top. Fun, fun!
