On July 21, 2017, we were swayed to select Stanton Lake due to distance (only 4 miles out and back), access to fishing, and the location (but more about that later). #1 Son would be accompanying us, and the 'boys' were hankering to do some fishing together. So off we went.
Once at the lakeshore, the trail flattened. We encountered numerous hikers, and a group of campers occupied the shore at the head of the lake, but nonetheless the boys located peaceful spots to cast a line. #1 Son caught one lake trout.
I kept myself occupied with the plentiful flora and fauna around me.

Now, back to location. Faithful readers will know about huckleberries, which pop up in my posts in pies and cakes and other delectables. An important factor in selecting a hike is proximity to a restaurant that serves huck pie … what better way to conclude a hiking day? Stanton Lake ticks the box - my 4Runner easily found its way to the parking lot of the Huckleberry Patch, conveniently situated on our way home!
