- Dry ground conditions.
- Little snow, one snow bridge to cross.
- Few bugs.
- Some bear sign.
We started out, planning to just go up to the beginning of the Granite Creek trail. We were feeling good, so we started up it a bit. We got to where an avalanche covered the trail, creating a bridge.
And it was a nice day, so we kept going farther.
And then we got to the waterfall.
And it was nice, so we stopped at the little lake there, and got some more water.
Then we headed back. It was an easy hike, with a nice view of the valley at the end. If you too have a water purifier pump, the water in the small lake is cool, even on a hot day.
