Eric and I have been taking advantage of this beautiful Summer weather by going on many hiking adventures. We usually stick to our 3 favorite spots, but this weekend we wanted to change things up a bit. After seeing so many pretty pictures from friends hikes up to Lake Serene I knew that would be our next destination. I had been dreaming about it all week! We called up some friends and planned for an early morning 4 mile trek up (like straightup) and reward ourselves with a brisk, but pretty swim in the glaciers. The day started off pretty muggy and overcast. I swear, I had never sweat so much in my life on a hike before! Unfortunately the higher up we went the thicker the clouds got. Although we didn't get the views we were hoping for, the hike was so much fun and the clouds added their own ambiance to the experience. But don't you worry, I'm coming back for you Lake Serene! But fingers crossed for a clearer day.
