Lake Annette used to be one of Super Mom's regular trips. She's hiked it a dozen times easily, and knew where we were every step of the way. And this hike has had the most steps yet.
We were supposed to meet our friends Kim and Tom at the trailhead, sometime around 10:00. But Hazel decided it was time to grow her first tooth, and she kept us up -- we were barely moving by 9:00 and no breakfast yet. It ended up being 2:00 before we were on the trail, and we finally passed Kim and Tom half way in as they were hiking back out.
Perfect weather for a hike, lots of sunbreaks and temperature in the upper 60s. And the best part -- after last week's hump up to Minotaur Lake, this trail felt easy!
