It’s still overcast in the morning but not raining. It’s not peak bagging weather, but we need some activity so we break camp and pack along the trail a ways. After a couple of miles we reach my original destination for the trip, Lee Lake. A cold wind blows, and clouds slip between the high peaks. Cliffs rise dramatically up to Dragon Head and Pronghorn Peaks to the west.
Spats of rain hit us, but as we eat lunch at Rainbow Lake it looks like it might clear up. We decide to camp nearby at Sunrise Lake, where we still have a chance to climb Dragon Head and Pronghorn if the weather is clear tomorrow. The colorful sunset over the lake bodes well for that.
