Hiking Summit Lake

Summit Lake @ Hatcher's Pass.

Summit Lake @ Hatcher’s Pass.

Summit Lake is 2 miles and 800 feet of elevation from the Hatcher’s Pass Lodge. It was a cool (41F) and rainy day, but we wore our winter coats hiked around the lake. We ran into these four playful Labradors. They were swimming in the lake and I couldn’t help but stare. DSCN3148

So I decided to give it a try, but the water was too cold for me.

      Thanks! We are back to the mid 70’s. But it doesn’t get hotter than that. You should come, I bet you will love it here.

    That’s Labs for ya, if there is a body of water to be found they must be in it. But, for you it looks like a lovely walk, I hope you do get to go back when it’s warmer.

      It’s too funny looking at T&B admiring them so much and then trying to imitate them.

      I know! We are back to mid 70’s, but it can get cold when it is overcast.

    Beautiful place. Your weather reminds me of fall hiking. The colors look so much richer then.

    • snowieners

      This is very characteristic of the tundra. We are planning a trip back here when the fall colors start to appear (way before real Autumn). It is all red/yellow and gorgeous.
