Phew! I could tell (and I think my fellow hikers would agree) we were at a little higher altitude than any of us were used to. The trail was supposedly a mile one-way, but it felt like much more. Fortunately, we were rewarded with a beautiful little lake at the end. Moe took a swim; the rest of us just kind of waded. Then we headed back down to our little cabin for some well earned rest.
