Drove around Polebridge to get to the Logging Lake trailhead. The trail starts at the Logging Creek Ranger Station and follows Logging Creek up past Logging Lake to Grace Lake where we camped. Very beautiful with loads of wildflowers and birds. The trail starts out very open as you wander through the burn areas, but closes up and becomes a walk in the trees with glimpses into the lakes. Mud and mosquitos exist for most of the year, so be mentally prepared for that as well as having appropriate gear.
My hiking partner was Steven Gnam who is a gifted photographer with a distinct style. Check out his site at http://www.stevengnamphotography.com. He’s also a really cool guy and shares my desire to learn birds and flowers. We had a great time despite the conditions being very challenging. Check it below!
