Brighton Hike - Lake Catherine 09-02-2013 - Part 4

A little bit further along the trail lies Lake Catherine.  Lake Catherine is also accessible from Little Cottonwood Canyon, so there was a different breed of hikers here.  While there were still some children they were on the older side.  I did also meet some wonderful people who suggested I do the Sunset Peak trail.

I also found the weather getting more substantially colder and more threatening.  I was a good 1.75 miles out at this point and while I was amply prepared for rain (umbrella, a windbreaker and a sweatshirt).  While the climb to this point was mild, I knew the further I climbed the colder it would get.

Lake Catherine is in the middle of a grotto and is another serene lake.  The fisherman usually don't come this far back, but I was told this is the spot for fishing...
