Sorry - got a little behind there but I wanted to finish of our vacation before I forgot.
Our Day 12, we met up with Dad and Shelley (who were driving home from Ontario) and did most of the waterfall/lake hike I wanted to do the day we had car problems. We didn't have time to make it all the way to the lake, but we got to see quite a few waterfalls along the way.
This was the busiest trail we'd been on. There must have been at least 5 cars in the parking lot, but while hiking we only crossed paths with one or two groups.
None of the waterfalls were particularly big, but they sure were pretty.
The weather was calling for a snowstorm the next day, so we decided to cut our holiday short by one day and head home. That night after the hike, we headed back to the cabin and packed up so we'd be ready to go bright and early the next day. We had some poor driving conditions along the way, but nothing horrible and from what we read afterwards, it looked like we made the right decision.
It is definitely an area we'd like to return to in the future. Aside from the cold weather, we couldn't have asked for a better vacation.
