We met up at our designated tree which had just enough shade for the four of us. We put our skins out in the sun to dry as much as possible and had a pleasant lunch, enjoying the fine spring weather. All across Lake Aloha, small teardrops of brilliant azure snowmelt accumulated in various low spots.
Richard's goal for the day was to swim in every lake we passed. I wasn't so keen on swimming in every lake, but I was more than happy to test the waters.
