Geo 365: Sept. 13, Day 256: Steel Bay and Cleetwood Cove

The closer of the two re-entrants beyond Llao Rock in the above photo is named Steel Bay; the farther is Cleetwood Cove. The latter is the only sanctioned place for visitors to actually reach the lake itself, via a 1.1-mile trail, with about a 650 foot elevation change. It's a hike I've never done, and right on the edge of what's currently possible for me. Note to young geologists: take every opportunity that arises to do it while you still can. There will come a time when you can't.
