Loon Lake Campout 7/20/14

Loon Lake

This five day campout at Loon Lake was probably one of the best.  We camped next to our friends Gary Goldsmith and his wife Cheryl and their new pup Benetar.  Benetar is only 7 months old and it was his first time in the wilderness.  Kate came up with the kayaks for the last 3 days.  We hiked  10 miles plus on the Rubicon Trail into Desolation wilderness.  Kayaked all over the lake.  Swimming was glorious, even tho a little chilly upon entry.  And I did kayak fishing and caught 4 nice rainbows on a glassy, early morning still lake.  Got a nice rain shower on Thursday nite.  All in all a terrific time.
