Dorothy Lake

Galena was busy today, catching up with friends, so I took the opportunity to head into the mountains. I looked through our map of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, and decided on the trail to (and past) Dorothy Lake, which I hadn't hiked before.

The weather was beautiful, and the trail wasn't overly crowded – I probably passed 30 or 40 people over the 13 miles I hiked. A few pictures:

Turns out that most of the pictures I thought were any good from this hike were of plants and wildflowers more than scenery. Most likely that's because it was pretty harsh sunlight most of the hike -- which makes for great viewing, and a great time, but not so hot pictures.

As a side note, I should mention that I love my Nikkor 18-200 VR lens. Recommended.
