August 25, 2009
It is pretty much a climb all the way to the lake except for the last little ways and that is straight down to the lake edge itself. It is easy to see where Jade Lake got its name what with the beautiful jade like color of the deep water tucked under the towering breccia Cliffs to the west.
On the way up we were passed by a group of riders from Brooks Lake Lodge accompanied by several guides who I know from Dubois. After exchanging pleasantries they have continued on beyond the lake and by the time we arrive they have all ready departed going on northward and circled back to the Lodge itself. This is a popular hiking trail and is enjoyed by many folks. This afternoon we have the lake all to ourselves.
