Dog Mountain

On Sunday we headed up to Seymour and took the First Lake trail to Dog Mountain. The snow pack is very thin in spite of the November storms, but it was still a beautiful hike to the lake (which was covered in happy dogs and surrounded by little whiskeyjacks who flew down and perched on our hands to sample crumbs from our lunch) and then up to the peak.┬áThe views were amazing, the sun was bright and warm, and we chatted briefly to some campers who had stayed on the mountain overnight. I looked out to the west, to snow-capped mountains and green valleys, and couldn’t imagine a better way to start a day than seeing the sun rise from among the peaks.
