Family trip to Ross Lake

My brother Eli is in town, and requested a trip that included a boat, islands, inlets, and big trees. Ross Lake seemed like the perfect location. We rented a skiff from Ross Lake Resort and set out for a day of family fun. See below for our trip, described in 35,000 words (i.e. 35 pictures).

    Very cool! Was it just a day trip? So badly want to get up Ross Lake this year. (Preferably to hike up Desolation)
