    Heavenly walk through the woods for the first 4miles. Mile 5-6 start to get your heart rate up, and the last 1.4miles is hard. I did also have an over night pack with all my gear, which that weighed ~30-35lbs. Make sure to start early to beat the heat and to get a good spot at the lake!

Royal Basin
Backpack trip with Emerson, Sarah E., Brendan, Brian, Tristan, and Tristan’s brother Dane. Got a super delayed start on Friday night and ended up sleeping in my truck bed at the trailhead. Made my way up to the basin in pouring rain Saturday morning and decided to stick around. The weather improved and our time exploring the basin was actually pretty nice. We camped at Royal Lake and I did a lot of fishing. Lots of brook trout in the lake but they were fairly finicky. Only caught three after several hours of fishing.
