Today was great and more like what I thought this whole hike would be like.

We always try to find grassy ramps which are so much easier to walk on than boulder fields.

Another unnamed beautiful lake.

Once again smoke ruined the views especially in the afternoon. But now in the evening I can see blue sky. Yay!

On our way to Europe Peak

Europe Peak was fun to climb. We climbed up some great granite and grassy ramps. Part way up we tried to locate the waypoint to help us find the “15 or 20 foot slab with good handholds on the right side; it’s a corner and not airy.” That just got really confusing so we went back to figuring it out ourselves. Once on top we took a nice long break.

Next up was an awesome ridgewalk   right on the Continental Divide. It was fast and easy walking.

Lunch at a nice tarn.

Then we descended into the Golden Lakes Basin and walked by 3 picturesque lakes…. that is if it wasn’t smoky.

We are now camped in an exposed area by Lake 10787. We are so fortunate to have the weather cooperating. There are so many gorgeous lakes like this one with no name other that the elevation.
