Saxonia is the only standard hike on any Packer trip. It’s a short one but the lake approach is a tricky section of climbing over boulders down to the lake. The boys love it and remind me of how much I loved climbing over those same rocks when I was their age.
After the previous year’s hiking, I took only film with me on a lot of the hikes this year and have decided to break my posts down on a per-hike basis. The hike to Lake Saxonia is the first one we take each year since it’s my mom’s favorite lake and it’s a good getting-used-to-the-altitude hike. And yeah, the last photo here is one of my recurring photo subjects.
Same trip as previous years. This may be the first year since I’ve started the blog though that I spent an entire week there. This is also the first time I’ve taken a TLR* hiking. Only a few of those photos are here but it was good to learn that I enjoy hiking with that camera.
