The hike to Sand Beach Lake - for me went quickly. Based on the number of pictures I took, I believe the majority of the hike is dense canopy with low light. It was an overcast day with a large wave cloud hanging over the trail all day. It's an interesting lake, the name Sand Beach Lake is very befitting of it. There were several people there that had camped overnight, so it's a somewhat popular destination. After the majority of people cleared out it is a peaceful lake. Wish I had better weather.
