Yesterday's hike to Cecret Lake wasn't anything like the first time I made the hike. Back then, my kids were little and they weren't too excited about the prospect of the hike at all. Even my bribery of having a breakfast picnic of egg mcmuffins at the top didn't muster up much enthusiasm.
I wanted to see the wildflowers which are spectacular right now so Ban and I went up to Albion Basin yesterday morning. Many others had the same idea so the area was teeming with people, we were surprised at how far we had to park from the trail head. I imagine the weekends will be considerably more crowded. But don't let that stop you, the air is crisp, clean, and cool and totally worth the effort.
