On June 7, Kathy and I hiked up the trail which leads from U.S. Highway 50 up to Boss Lake reservoir and then on to Hunt Lake. Well, actually, we drove up a large part of the way to Boss Lake in Nelson's old Blazer (affectionately known as "The Beast"). Once the "road" became too rough to proceed any farther, we parked the truck. Just as we were ready to start hiking, there was a sudden snow/slush/hail shower. The snow accumulated quickly on the windshield and roof of the vehicle. In about ten minutes, it was over and we headed up the trail.
After a lot of slogging through wet snow, I made it to Hunt Lake, which has an elevation of 11,554'. In the background is Clover Mountain, located along the Continental Divide.
With snow covering most of the trail once we passed Boss Lake, there were times when we strayed from the intended route.
