    fabulous, easy hike

    Walking around the lake was lovely. It was a smooth path to follow, and there were numerous places for Galaxy (my dog) to wade into the water (my profile photo is from this hike!) We then moved to the lower parking lot and visited Awosting Falls -- again, swam with the pooch by the waterfall! Beautiful. Easy to go back to the car for supplies, then back to the lake. Bring a picnic lunch, a lot of water and you're good to go.
