Two weeks later and hopefully not my last hike of the season, again I was back at the Moffat Tunnel and the East Portal Trailhead. I say this because the weather is getting much cooler especially in the mornings and today is a perfect example. But if you know me, I always hike in shorts no matter the weather. Call me crazy and I’m sure many have, but I’m most comfortable this way and I dont feel the cold on the lower half of my body anyway.
This time the hike would take me to Rogers Pass Lake, which was the original destination but later it turned out that we would throw in a short and steep quarter mile addition up to Heart Lake as well.
To me there is no better smell when I’m hiking than the fresh smell of pine. It just awakens my senses and lets me know that know matter how many miles are ahead of me, that this will always trump any day at the office! You get plenty of fresh pine smells on this trail. Enjoy the pictures!
