Delicious run today.  As Oreo might say...it was cherry.  Went up to White Pine lake in Little Cottonwood Canyon.  I read that this is one of Meltzer's favorite trails and wanted to check it out.  Beautiful stunning scenery.  The trailhead sign says it is 4 miles to the lake but my garmin had it at nearly 5. Was able to run more of the up than I was expecting and all of the down. 

 Maybe details later...suffice it to say that this is a wonderful trail with stunning views and even gets up above the major tree line with some pockets of snow still.

You can see where the trail cuts over to the lake in the picture below



Still some snow
