The lakes were about another mile away (the mileage was a bit off calling this a 10 mile hike...we think it's at least at 12) but with the view we had we decided to turn around and head back. I am sure the lakes were beautiful but 10 miles was enough for one day. The snow was getting super soft and it felt more like ice skating instead of snow shoeing. Amazing day, amazing lunch, amazing company! It felt great to get out and stretch the legs. Can't wait to tackle this again and get to the lakes.
