June 8

We got up and drove to Wheeler Peak Trailhead to hike the Alpine Lake Loop Trail. This trail took us past two pretty lakes, Stella Lake and Teresa Lake. The trail started out at 10,000 ft. and gained 400 ft. in altitude. It was 4 miles round trip. In many places the trail was covered by snow and the only way to find the trail was to look for footprints in the snow. Between Stella and Teresa Lakes, the weather took a turn and it started to sleet and snow on us. It took us 2 hours 10 minutes to hike it. In the afternoon we took a tour through Lehman Caves inside the park. As caves go, this one was pretty good.
