We were one person short of a full group due to a cancellation yesterday that didn’t get filled. We met and were off at about 8:45 and hit the trial at 9:30. Perfect weather but lots of biting flies, worse for getting higher. At the lake, I waded to the island and the bugs were not too bad there due to more breezes. Two people swam the lake and were okay. Some of the folks who stayed on the shore complained about getting “eaten alive” and we left after an hour and a quarter to return down. Stopping to wait meant getting descended on by flies. But overall people were happy with the hike.
