Exploring North America in an Airstream

Hike L’Envol

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Wednesday, 60, 87 at 3:00 and that’s very hot here

We took the 2-hour hike L’Envol right up the mountain, which I think is rated moderate or easy, but it’s a pretty good climb. Chip Grobmyer would do it in a breeze, but I needed a sweat towel. The reward at the top is a spectacular view of the park and the way lakes run like rivers. A couple of cute families were in front of us and took pictures of the children on a bench designed for that purpose. I could see they do this often and were quite familiar with the hike. They will surely have a series of pictures of the kids on this bench through the years. Coming back down on a steep, gravel path is maybe as difficult as going up as there is the chance of sliding to a fall. 

A swim in Lac Jolie was soooo refreshing. We enjoyed a leisurely afternoon in camp.
