Sunday, October 10th
Lake Sabrina to Blue Lake

It was another fine sunny and warm day today. I did some more research on the web, trying to find a good hike in a place with good color. I read about the hike from Lake Sabrina to Blue Lake, but found conflicting reports about the distance. A book I had said it was 5.8 miles, while another book said 6.0 miles. One web site had it at 6.6 miles, while another had it at 8.0 miles! It also wasn't clear whether they were marking the distance from the trailhead, or from the official parking lot a half mile from the trailhead. If it was just me, the distance disparity wouldn't matter. But the kids had never done a hike more than 6 miles, so this might be pushing it. Every extra half mile mattered. But eventually I decided the distance was close enough, and finding a web site that called the hike "spectacular" pushed me over the edge.

Since it was a longer hike, we got an earlier start. We left about a half hour earlier than yesterday, driving south to do the Lake Sabrina to Blue Lake hike.

After the hike, we drove back to the Swall Institute where I enjoyed watching the Giants come back against the Braves in the NLDS (on tape delay).
