4MM - Yesterday was hike day (#3)

For our June hike, the Four More Miles Club hiked to Lake Blanche.  It was a delightful hike to share with a fantastic group, and the views were truly inspiring. 

   We can't believe we're so lucky to have this amazing hike 15 minutes from our driveway (and that we have a driveway).  And we were so happy to be able to share a great hike day with so many great people.  This month, our fellow hikers ranged in age from 2 to 59ish, but every hiker bounded up the trail, and most had enough energy at the top to push boulders around the glacial moraine.  (Well, Denver did, anyway.)

This entire area is so gorgeous.  Sundial Peak towers over Lake Blanche, and then there are a couple other lakes and canyons, and dozens of additional snow-capped peaks to explore.  I'm already planning my return visit so that I can explore that canyon heading up the left flank of Sundial Peak.

We're already planning our July hike, so if you would like to join us, just let us know and we'll make sure you're added to the e-mail list to receive the details.

thanks for posting pictures of the top. Now we know what we missed, but we sure enjoyed our hike, and getting to spend part of it with all of you. Looking forward to July.
