It was a beautiful day, but still too much snow to get to my favorite trailheads. So instead, Ruby and I headed up for Box Lake.

Approach

Black Lee Creek was raging. The normal creek crossing here was under water, so we walked the log on the left.

Approach
Ruby was excited to be on snow gain, ranging widely across the valley as I plodded up the hill. Approach

That's Peak 8270.

Approach

When we got to the saddle above Box Lake, it was time for lunch. Then we skipped hiking down to the lake, instead heading home.

Approach

Ruby doing her thing.

Approach
Looking south. Approach
One more log crossing. Approach
