Little hike up Dry Creek trail no. 43

This morning I hesitated when deciding between whether to pull on the bike tights and ride the bike or go hiking in the Lone Peak Wilderness area.  I opted for the hike, specifically up the Dry Creek trail that begins in Alpine, just above Lambert Park. 
I only made it to about 7,700 ft., not too far above horsetail falls, but it sure was nice to get out for a couple of hours, get some exercise and enjoy the fresh mountain air.

Looking back into Alpine

Next time, I'll get up a little earlier and see if I can make it to Lake Hardy or go to the saddle that overlooks Tibble Fork and Deer Creek.
