Spooner Lake

We went on another hike in the Carson Mountains. Started out on the north side of Spooner Summit intending to hike north on the Tahoe Rim Trail.
Saw this loop trail and decided to take it instead.
The trail lead downhill first. It was a sandy trail that lead us out of the pines and into an aspen grove.
I thought this tree was interesting in the way the main truck kept dividing in two.
Of course we couldn't get the whole tree in one photo.
Where the trail started its loop around the lake there was a boardwalk to get across areas that were probably wet earlier in the year.
There were ducks on the lake and fishing was allowed.

We walked all the way around the lake. Lots of people out enjoying this trail.
Nolan even spotted a blue heron.

At one point the trail met up with this road that we think used to be part of an old railbed. The loop trail turned and I wanted to make sure Nolan saw where it turned, so I was making faces at him here. Glad you can't see that in the photo.
This trail was much easier than the one we did a few days ago but the uphill climb at the end was enough to make me tired.
