Trip Planning: Thousand Island Lake via Rush Creek, September 2015

posted in: Trip & Hike Planning | 0

I’m not exactly sure how I learned about Thousand Island Lake, but when I first saw pictures of it, I knew I had to find a way to get there. With a busy schedule and limited overnight trips though, this has proven to be a challenge. Luckily things seemed to line up for me this week – I found permits, a campsite for the night before my hike and someone to go with me!
