Escaping The Nutshell

On this very windy day, we started from the Bear Lake parking area at about 10:50, hiked up the trail to Nymph Lake, then Dream Lake, Lake Haiyaha, up the Loch Vale Trail to The Loch, then back to the Glacier Gorge Trailhead via the Fire Trail, and up to the parking area. We returned at 15:20.
The way we approached Lake Haiyaha from the northeast turned out to be not the best way. If we had continued on the trail a little further to the south before turning off to the lake, it would have been much easier. This is the way we returned. You can see this on the tracks.
On the drive back to Estes Park, we stopped at Sprague Lake and walked around the lake. There are some scenes on the video.
