A socially-distanced, very long day-trip to Leavitt Lake with a brief hike over to Ski Lake. Fishing was not the best (8 others fishing Ski Lake!) but the hike and the views were glorious. It was 72F at 9600' in elevation and allowed me to be in shorts and short sleeves all day. I also got to spend some quality time with Z on our hike to Ski. He did such a great job going up and down steep slopes that were covered in loose scree in some areas.
The road to Leavitt has really deteriorated over the past decade and only high-clearance 4x4 trucks can make the journey. Even our Subaru wouldn't make it these days.
