So I exaggerated a bit there. It's just that I was tired and I've never been a strong hiker to start with. The information board said it was an easy walk to the lookout so I thought I'd do it. Except it wasn't really an easy walk. It was a bit of a climb. I wasn't prepared for it so I was grumpy and I felt like dying halfway through the walk. The people coming from the other way, seeing how close I was to dying, cheered me on and told me that the view was worth the climb. I guess it was enough to keep me going. I made it to the lookout and live to tell you the story and show you one of the pictures I took.
We will be back in the proximity of the lake in a little over a month. Kind of tempted to go back there just to see if I've become a less whiny hiker now than I was then, seven years ago. Somehow I doubt it.
