Herman Lake

Opted to hike with the dogs this AM instead of running, and had a good time.  I think we made it to the trailhead in just 45 minutes for a 6:45 AM start, early enough that we avoided what looks to be a mess of construction around Idaho Springs.  The parking lot had a lot of cars in it that early, but we only saw one person on the way up, and had the whole trail and lake to ourselves.  Roughly 7 miles to the lake and then we tacked on another mile or 2 by scrambling on the mountains around the lake and then making up our own route for most of the return trip to the parking lot.  I had to carry Elly some the last mile, but overall dogs did great.  Going to have to do some more longer stuff like this with them.
