We headed off with our friends on a nicely marked trail to the east of the valley.
All the while, Big Blue meandering just below through the trees
I of course was lolly gaging behind taking pictures
We finally found a lunch spot out in the open
Yes, it was cool enough at this altitude to sit out in the open, in the sunshine. Tom and our friends were enjoying looking down at Big Blue when eating the lunch we had packed.
*If there has been a lot of moisture, be sure to pack bug repellent of this hike, there can be a lot of mosquitoes..
