It was worth it, though. The weather was perfect and we saw a lot of wildlife. Everything from caterpillars to MOOSE.

When we continued on our way, passersby kept telling us there was a bull moose down the trail, and another female. We lucked out and saw all three!

Linc kept calling them deer and I was like, DUDE THESE ARE SO MUCH MORE EXCITING THAN DEER! I'm glad we were able to watch these animals eat for such a long time.
When we finished the walk around Silver Lake, I looked back and could see what appeared to be the female adult making her way up the mountain (bottom right photo, just above the shadow created by the pines). It was so beautiful!
