After a brutally long day the day previous, Kaycie and I awoke at our bivy on Carnarvon Lake ready for a much more relaxed day. Thanks to knocking off not only the 11km, 700m gain approach but also the neighboring summits of Mount MacLaren and Shankland (another 11km and 1150m of height gain), we had a much easier second day planned. We would start our day with an easy, short ascent of Mount Strachan and then spend the rest of it lounging around beautiful Carnarvon Lake reading, eating and checking out the lake. We were both really looking forward to it!
