Angel Lake June 17

Today, I decided to go hiking up at Angel Lake. Angel Lake is 13 miles outside of Wells in the East Humboldt Mountains. The area is very scenic and a fun place to go hiking. I knew that I was taking a chance on encountering snow because Nevada has had a cool, rainy June so far. I left Angel Lake with the intentions of heading to Grey Lake (about a six mile hike one way). After two miles, I encountered steep snowfields and turned around. The trail up to Smith lake had even more snow. The weather was wonderful and ten days should melt the snow.
