Heading back to the trailhead
After a speedy descent (Jennifer was practically running down the mountain, so we arrived back at the trailhead about 30 minutes ahead of everyone else), we decided to wander over to nearby Middle Saranac Lake for a swim. Chilly! but very clear and nice, and once actually in the water it wasn't so bad. The lake bottom is very sandy and shallow out a long ways, so I was able to easily go way out into the lake, turn around, and get a good shot of Ampersand's summit from below. Eventually Pu, Markus and others joined us in the water.

Final snack break
On the way back, we stopped for a quick and tasty treat at a local burger/ice cream stand in Tupper Lake. Thanks, Pu, for organizing this great outing, and I hope to see many of you on the trail again soon!
