Here we were joined by a young Frenchman. The sign by the trail stated that you must be in a group of four people or more by law, with risk of appearance in court and a maximum fine of $5000 if caught violating. Because of this, Antoine hiked along with us, which was very nice.
We learned quite a bit about France and their pronunciation (some were very funny) of things. He kindly took some pictures for us and we took a few on his camera for him.
BUNNIES! We saw quite a few domestic looking bunnies, no cottontails, although the two brown ones look like a crossbreed.

Here we are!
We hiked to the end of the lake and I found this awesome rock path up more than 100 feet and climbed it. People followed. ^-^
My editing hasn't been cooperating lately, but that's Amanda and me climbing rocks.
Amanda, Mom, and me. We were at the summit of the rock trail, but of course, I had to climb higher.
Amanda, Dad, and me.

CHIPMUNK! It must be Alvin; no glasses and it's little.
I climbed down a pathless rock pile to the beach and skipped rocks until the others followed me down.

Antoine took this one for us on the bear trail.
Once we got to Lake Consolation it had a terribly rocky shore, probably due to a rock slide, but it was awesome.

Antoine took a picture at Lake Consolation for us. :)
Challenging place to get to. Antoine and I made it. Dad got wet trying.

I spotted three Common Poorwills on the trail back and we grabbed a few pictures.
There was a river on the trail, from Lake Consolation.
And since there was a tree over the river, I had to sit on it.

So that was today. Well....Yesterday now. Hope you all like the pictures!
