Comanche Lake

We backpacked into Comanche Lake, just south of Venable Lakes, on July 25th, 2008. It was raining at the trailhead and proved to be the rainiest trip we’ve ever been on. But we had a good time fishing and exploring.

We even survived a hail storm . . .

It was deafening, but dry, inside the tents.

Warm and dry inside the tent, even if you needed to yell to be heard

All that moisture made it tough to get a warm and drying fire going . . .

On Sunday the skies cleared for a pleasant hike out.

Paul’s friend James came along as well as some of our other backpacking pals, Jeff and his son Zach, and Steve and his son Kyle.
