Kristhawee spots trout in the water and chides me for not having brought along fishing gear…
Gorgeous spot, but we still have a little ways to go to reach Eightmile Lake.
Up we go, leaving Little Eightmile Lake behind-
As we climb I realize that “little” Eightmile isn’t really so little-
Kristhawee is getting tired and giving me a “look”
I promise it’s not much farther Kristhawee! And it will be worth it!!
Unconvinced perhaps, Kristhawee presses on-
The steep trail follows Eightmile Creek- we can’t be far now!
I’m still getting “the look”
We made it!!! Eightmile Lake dead ahead!
What a gorgeous spot! We went for a quick swim in the icy cold water- shocking cold!! Kristhawee talked me into jumping off a big rock-
The funny little dude- I told that if I jumped he had to jump too, and he replied, “But dad, I’m just a little kid!!”

Splat! Man that water was COLD!!!
What did I tell you Kristhawee- worth the hike, wasn’t it?
Can’t remember what we were talking about, but love the look he’s giving me-
Kristhawee at Eightmile Lake, Alpine Wilderness, Washington, USA!
We hiked along the shore a ways and discovered some really nice camping spots… We should come back here some day and spend a night or two!
We had a lot of food and I didn’t particularly feel like carrying it all back down the mountain, so we stopped for another picnic
