My first glimpse, but not my first encounter. I checked the lake level before I left, and it was five feet above standard pool. When I was here this time last year, I think it was eleven feet above pool. Anyway, the lake was high enough to have covered the trail in places. Not too deep, mid-calf or so, but enough to make it impossible to see where the trail went.
Sunset was due in thirty minutes, so I had to get moving if I didn’t want to be setting up camp in the dark (again).
