If There's a Heaven ...

... I hope it looks something like this:

Picture of Lake Alpine (elev. 7300'), taken from Inspiration Point (elev 7920') in the midst of a trail run earlier this week.

I've spent the past 8 days in one of my all-time favorite playgrounds: the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Alpine County, CA. Our family enjoys an annual summertime excursion here, and each time we visit, it feels harder to say goodbye.

This year, the trails above and around this lake also served as an ideal field testing laboratory for several pieces of gear which I'll review in upcoming weeks; throw that in with a couple of photo essays from the trip as well as the ongoing barefoot running experiment, and we're looking at a busy beginning of August in Running and Rambling Land.

I guess that means the vacation is officially over. They just never last long enough.

Ahhh.....
Yup, pretty awesome. I just spent my own day running around solo in the Sierra high country. No lakes, but still...I'm a tired, happy girl.

Do me a favor--please don't review anything I'm planning to review, okay? I'll send you a list. ;)

Is there camping at that lake? Looks gorgeous!

Looks awesome. So much better than the muddy brown 'mountain' lakes around here.

Btw, I was thinking about ya yesterday while doing a hot run up in the mountains and running past farm homes with small pools near them. Thought back to your post where you jumped right in the river. I eventually found a river...but it was more like a small stream. And only would have gotten to my ankles. Sad panda.
