It was gorgeous today! We woke up to a lake of glass. We had been discussing whether we should go back to Agnes today to shorten our travel time on Monday, but we just couldn't leave after seeing this.

After breakfast we headed out fishing. We couldn't help taking a few more photos. We had a bit of success fishing. We were able to catch dinner, so we were satisfied. The 3 lb northern below was going to be dinner until I caught a 1.5 lb smallmouth bass a little later.

After catching the bass, we decided to stop fishing and explore some more. We climbed Warrior Hill - what a view! It was one of the more spectacular things I've seen in my life.

We went back to camp and relaxed during the afternoon. The sun was out, hardly any wind, and the temperature was in the 60s. It really can't get any better than this in mid-April.
