I discovered something when I arrived at the Silver Lake trailhead. It turns out that there are TWO Silver Lakes in the area. There is one that you get to from American Fork Canyon, which is the one to which I thought I was going to this morning, but from a different access point. Then there is the other one, which I drove to this morning.
The best of my photos from June 2020.
The trail itself is fantastic. There are sections that are simply magical. Birds chirping, Aspen leaves ruffling, waterfalls churning and the greens and flowers and views are quite nice.
