Trip Report – Morte Lake Loop 7 Jan 2015

This trip was scheduled on short notice, after the postponement of the hike to the Stramberg old growth grove due to snowfall. There was virtually no snow on the Morte Lake trail, most of the snow was in the parking lot. The four of us took a leisurely pace on the gradual walk up the old logging road leading past lovely forest, glowing moss, creeks and ponds. It was very quiet and foggy. We stopped for lunch at the picnic area on the south shore and took the side trip to the viewpoint on the southeast. Near the end, we crossed the creek and returned to the parking lot on the mountain bike trail. About 4 hours; 10.8 km.
