Feeling a little trashed from running Grays/Torreys the previous day, it was a nice change of pace to do some casual hiking with Allison, Sierra, Kevin and Joe. We got up in the morning without a plan and called Kevin and he proposed "something on the East side of Evans". I just went along and the remainder of the day was improv, which I normally am opposed to as it rarely seems to work out when there is no plan. "Working out" usually means me getting to the top of some peak, and I planned on nabbing Epaulet, the little bump between Rosalie and Evans. It took us quite some time to get to the lake, so by the time we got there, the skies looked a bit threatening and I was content chilling out. Great day with great company, followed by a burger, fries and shake in Morrison to top it off.
