Thompson Lake 1.7.03

Left the middle fork rd. at 1230 up the granite creek rd. I wanted a somewhat long day to work off the holiday cheer. I made my way up the long way to Granite Lakes, I did not need snowhoes until approx 3200 ft. . With such a beautiful day and with a road exit I decided to push a little further finally hitting the Thompson Lake trailhead at 3:15, I continued on with the initial descent, after dropping a 100ft of elevation I found a nice sunny spot to soak up as much of the winter rays as I could. There was very little snow on the trail and was easy to follow. After a 20 minute sun bath I hit the return trail. By the time I reached the car it was very dark with a very nice crescent moon to light the way.

Approx 14 miles round trip with 3400 ft of climb Total hiking time 5:00
