We found a piece of paradise today nestled high above surrounded by forests and mountain peaks!
Rawson Lake it was!
Radiant is was!
Today’s hike, going and coming, was a great way to get caught up on each other’s comings and goings with my friend R who I have not seen in about a year. There was lots of catching up to do, so much to chat about, it made the day go by quick but we still savored the scenery.
Both of us had been to Rawson Lake before but today that did not diminish the sense of enjoyment that being in a place like this brings on. It still invokes that lost for words feeling! In chatting, we realized that over the years we have experienced Rawson in all seasons. I have even been there in the dead of winter.
The trail was busy but not overwhelming. We felt safe in the numbers! As R said, no self respecting bear would make an appearance in this neck of the woods this day! Even though it is not prime time for the wild flowers, they still put on a show for us, as did the picas, squirrels, chipmunks and moles. The fishermen were casting, the lake trout jumping, the parks visitor center rep patrolling and the ridge walkers could be seen way off in the distance...lots happening to catch our attention!
It was such an enjoyable day! Thank you for sharing it with me! I look forward to hiking again with you!
Maybe Buller will be Beautiful, or Lillian will be Luscious, or Galatea will be Gorgeous!
