Seven intrepid hikers headed out to hike around the Semi White lake, counterclockwise to deal with rugged, challenging sections while still fresh. The hike and conversations were lively and spirited. While enjoying one of the amazing views at a break, a bald eagle flew over to say hey but didn’t stay long enough to get a picture of it in flight. This hike is a combination of rocky parts, silent bush trails and endless up and downs. It is a favorite of mine and should be enjoyed every year. It is 11.5 km and we hiked it in five and a half hours with two major food breaks and some water breaks. We all arrived at the park, safe and sound, having had a marvelous time.
