That afternoon, I delightedly swam/frolicked in the frigid lake while Laini rested on the pebbly beach shore. Then I very happily scrubbed my sweaty, smelly hiking clothes in the sand at the water's edge, laid them out to dry, and then bundled up in my warmest fleece jacket and pants before sitting by my clothes to guard them from the curious mountain goats. It was a wonderful day.
