Part I of III
Last time that I was here was on march 28. From the main trail you may see the "ROHR" sign pointing to the east. In some places this steep trail is really muddy, fortunately I have an extra pair of shoes in my truck.
Last time I was trying to reach Rohr Lake but unfortunately that day we only make it to the bottom of a steep bench. This time only one hiker (Isabel) was with me and I didn't have to worry about leaving people behind me.
After you reach the boulder-strewn bench the trail is very difficult to follow. This is one of the few times where Baby Chow needed my help. Well, that's why friends are for.
We scramble through the boulders and finally we reached the top of the bench. Looking back we have views of Cayoosh Mountain. At this time I didn't want to think about the descent.
This is the start of Hanging Valley. Even on the alpine the mosquitoes are a real nuisance.
A lot of marmots on the rocks. The wildlife viewing is an added bonus to visit this area.
At this point we were 300 meters from Rohr Lake but initially the lake is hidden. You have to stay on the north side and please, watch your step.
Then you will see the lake. Beautiful, isn't it?
And then, I saw how the clouds were covering Mount Rohr.
