lake blanche (sort of)

so i decided that i wanted to explore the wasatch wilderness, the mountain range near salt lake city. i planned a 5.6 mile hike to a lake in the mountains. i packed water, a picnic lunch, my Bible, and journal and set off yesterday morning. it was a beautiful area – mountains, gorgeous fall colors, rushing stream, and high peaks in the distance. it was peaceful. but…about 2 miles into it i was getting lonely and scared of every twig that snapped or leaf that wrustled. so i turned around. didn’t make it to lake blanche. bummer. i did manage to get a few pictures. moral of the story: anyone want to go hiking with me?! 🙂
