LBL Hike - June 24, 2000

We gathered at the South Welcome Station early in the morning hoping to avoid the day's heat.  Everybody was ready to go.  Some of us had gone on 10 mile hikes before.  Some of us hadn't.  We were all excited about it, even the adults.

As soon as we left the parking lot for the trail head, it began raining.  It didn't last long.

We stopped for lunch about 1/2 way around the 10 mile trail.  It was very hot and we were drinking a lot of our water.  We rested about every mile and a half of trail.

Here we are, ready to get moving again.  The whole trek took us about 6 1/2 hours.  When we were finished, everyone drank lots and lots of water before going home.  On the way home, we stopped for ice cream and had a good time.
