Egypt Lake first came into view when I stood at the edge of the cliff. Then, I saw the stream of Scarab Lake water snaking down the valley, disappearing into the woods. At the end it would find its way to join the lake a thousand plus feet below. When I looked up beyond the lake, Healy Pass that we lugged our heavy backpacks up and over caught my eye. It was a good climb. And tomorrow we will climb back up the hill and find ourself looking back at Scarab Lake and its waterfall when we reach the top of the pass again.
