Used to be able to come here for solitude and now it is a freaking zoo. Another nice place getting loved to death. ONP is going to need to enforce quotas and a reservation system in this fragile habitat.
I won't come back here on a weekend ever again. All of Seattle seems to know about it now. I felt like I was at Serene Lake or Lake 22. I won't be naming this lake or trail ever again on my blog or in trip reports.
