After detours and missed roads, we were stopped 1mi from the TH due to downfall . . . hmm . . .
Eli returns bearing chain-saw-wielding person.
Beautiful stair-step waterfall that is the little sister to one I saw in the Lake Louise (BC) region
Up on the Cabinet Divide trail (I think) looking down on Baree Lake
Mmmm, huckleberries are my favorite!
Mmmm, maybe billberries are my favorite!
Our fearless leaders. Eli do you ever smile?
Side trip to the other Bear Lakes
Erin, Norman, Markus
Glimpse of the larger Bear Lake; didn't have a long enough lense to catch a pic of the private residence down there.
Lots of yellow in these rocks. Can't remember. Does that indicate iron? Or sulphur? Or what?
Score on the location. Wish we could have used the fire pit!!
One of the master chefs . . . Eli . . . still not smiling.
I guess Eli is only happy when he's bustling about pointlessly sweeping rocks.
Descent to Bear Lakes TH. (My knees are cursing me.)
No trip is complete without fear of impass due to 18-wheelers in the back country.
Ah, good to swim the stink off and scare the locals at the same time.
The ONLY group photo of the trip. What a group of "lookers"! ;)
