Last night I met up with another hike participant, J, would had just arrived after driving from South Carolina. We had dinner together and the today we drove up the Beartooth pass and did a little hike up where the air is clear , and noticeable thinner.
On the way up we stopped at a lookout with tremendous views over to where we will be hiking, if the guides don’t think there is too much snow. Here is a view up the valley.
We then continued up to the Wyoming boarder and were greeted with a view of the Tetons (?)
We did not see the trail on the way down which was across a high meadow of wild flowers.
The lakes when we got down to them were delightful and not another person to be seen.
We set of to see if we could circumnavigate them. We got a good way but in the end decided it was a bit to far and backtracked. We stopped for lunch and a nap. I was just about to go for a quick dip when two ladies from Sacromento with there three dogs appeared. The dogs were having a wonderful time.
We then made our way, slowly, back up the hill to J’s car. In the distance we could see the afternoon thunderstorm making its way towards us.
