Hiking 59:41  3.62 km (16:30 / km) +84m 14:46 / km
Day 13. Fully sunny day! We all went to hike Mirror lake, but everybody wanted to go at a relaxed pace, except for me, so I went ahead alone. I wanted to go all the way up and try again to reach North Dome from the other side. There were lots of people in the beginning, but almost no people after the trail became like an obstacle course. After the trashy part, the trail was good again. And it finally started going up!

I restarted my watch after seeing distance stuck at 3.62 for maybe 15 minutes. Anyway, the excellent part of the trail began! This was one of my favorite hikes. I hiked up to snow creek, and met only few people in the way. The views here were amazing. At the top, I took the trail on the left going along the creek, while all backpackers would have went right. From fresh snow that fell down last night I could tell I was the first person to walk this trail today! The trail was mostly runnable and I was running there like a happy Bambi. I was having so much fun and I still had half of snickers and couple of out of shape sandwitches, so I was ready to go to the North Dome and further, even through El Captain and down some long trail that ends behind the bagel shop in Suffern, NJ. Ok, maybe not so far. I guess it doesn't matter, because I ran into a fallen tree and everything behind it was covered in snow and more fallen trees and I had to turn around...
