Yesterday, I went on a long loop hike at the northern end of the Eagles Nest Wilderness with Buddy and Moe. We hiked to Surprise Lake and Eaglesmere Lake. We found less than an inch of snow in the higher portions and colorful aspen trees throughout. At one point, I had to carry Moe over a two-log bridge crossing a stream because he refused to try it. The colorful aspens were particularly intense in the groves near the end of the hike.
