I took an extra day of the long weekend to line up with Doc’s day off and we went to the Uinta mountains, to explore the area around Crystal Lake. We were planning on a loop but ended up doing an out-and-back (the Lakes Country trail) and it did indeed deliver on the lakes:

Everything is still green but it was 48 degrees when we started and the light just looks like fall. I guess it comes faster at 10,000 feet.
