I hiked to Chasm Lake on Friday. I had been there before, but not since 2003. Going back was a blast because last time I was there I was in charge of 10 campers, ages 10-12, and that slowed things down just a bit. This time I made it up in an hour and 25 minutes, stayed for about thirty minutes, took some photos, had a lunch, and ran down in about 45 minutes. It was a much different experience. I am blessed to have a place like this in my backyard.
