I hiked in to Discovery Lake with two of my students from Karate class. I was the young one in the group. We summited the peak in a couple of hours and were back down to the lake before dark. It was a fairly easy climb. I had only climbed one other peak before this one so it was pretty new to me. I thought that the old abandoned mine was quite cool. It was a pretty overcast day but we did not get rained on so it was worthwhile.
