Shedding the Crowds at Gem Lake

Shedding the Crowds at Gem Lake

Summer is quickly drawing to an end here in the PNW. It’s beginning to get dark around dinner time, all the light has a wonderful golden quality to it, and the leaves on certain trees are starting to turn. The rain made a glorious appearance last week before Labor Day, heralding the end to the sun drenched weekends we’ve been enjoying for what feels like so long now. While I’m ready for the return of blanket season, I’m not quite ready to give up the high alpine elevations that are so accessible right now. This weekend, we set our sights on Gem Lake, a hike that’s been on my list for a couple years now, ever since hiking to Snow Lake for the first time almost two years ago.
