Short break before uphill battle

Our hike on the second day of backpacking the High Sierra Trail (HST) was from Bearpaw Campground to Precipice Lake. Along the way we passed this lovely Hamilton Lakes. Hamilton Lakes were a popular choice to camp for both HST thru hikers and 2-3 day backpackers. Although it was only just over 2 miles between Hamilton Lakes and Precipice, it had the most elevation to gain out of the-6-mile distance for the day. Over 2,100 feet in just over 2 miles. We knew we should take a short break here to get ready for that real uphill battle. I soaked my feet in the lake for a bit while filling up my water bottles. It was quite refreshing. Soon, we were ready to continue up the section of the trail that offered no shade whatsoever in a quite warm afternoon.
