Lanham Lake

 

 

JANUARY 30, 2010  A Mountaineers snowshoe.  There was no fresh snow for this snowshoe hike along Lanham Creek to the Lake, and although the woods had a messy, unmade appearance, they were still pretty.  The trail climbs gently but steadily, then crosses a groomed ski track before it enters a forest of snow-covered Christmas trees.  You know  you are almost at the lake when the trail steepens in a lovely old-growth forest.  After lunch we hiked around the lake before starting our return trip.   We met a family in the clearing under the power lines who had built a snow-dog while we were at the lake.
