Hey i hiked lake blanche today too. What time were you up there, I bet I saw you on the trail

Started 10:25, got to the lake 12:00 it took me 1 hour 35 minutes, too slow. Best time was 1 hour 20 minutes and that was about half way to Lake Florence. Sat next to the lake and had some cherries and snack mix (Chukar). Left about 12:25. It was a great day, kinda looked like a storm was heading in about 1:15 or so saw a bunch of people heading up. Hope you had a great time, Lake Blanche is a favorite of mine. This is the 3 time in about the last month and a half.

Yeah, I bet that we did pass each othere on the trail somewhere, I started up about 11. This was the first time I've been up there so I just spent some time walking around all the lakes and checking out the falls. The rain came in hard about 3:00, but then stopped in 30 minutes or so.
