Inspired by Oreo 13 up Snowbasin, I hauled my sorry butt up to the Dog Lake-Desolation Lake Loop.  Perfect weather about 68 at the start.  Lots of people because of Saturday but no bikers.  The views around Desolation lake are great.  I was flagging a bit on energy the last 6 of this but just happy to be out in the mountains, eating my almonds and rice cakes, so glad Ive finally decided Gu just no good for me...  Cool times... Not fast times as it was 2:31 and about 2750 vertical...but cool times for sure
