In the first weekend of August we backpacked deep into the Trinity Alps Wilderness to Granite Lake. We set up camp along a small hill of smooth rock overlooking this gem of a lake nestled along a ring of stunning, jagged mountains. The weather was hot and sunny, so we quickly jumped into the cool water for a very refreshing swim. We are in the heart of summer in the mountains now. The wildflowers are abundant, the snow fields have diminished considerably and the sun feels hot. We are certainly living up the summer!
