We finally made it!
After four years of wanting to take Emerald to “her lake” we got reservations and made the hike all the way up to Emerald Lake.
If you include Bear lake this is about a four mile alpine hike. All Trails calls it moderate and I would agree, both kids did really well and hiked the entire thing on their own.
We had to reserve a spot a month in advance, park in the overflow lot and ride a shuttle to the trail head, but it was worth it for this gorgeous hike.
I think Dream Lake is my favorite of all four lakes.
So proud of these kids!
