Upper Setting Road is very rough and rocky and there are few people who drive to the end. Castle Lake is nice and I saw several deer in the area. I climbed up the north ridge of the mountain. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see very far because it was so smoky from all the wildfires.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
