August 6, a great bunch of friends and I hiked up to Rock Island Lakes in the West Big Hole of the Beaverhead -Deerlodge National forest. It was a great day for a hike. The trail was lined with vegetation, lots of wild flowers seen along the way. Got to the destination, and absorb the beauty. The lakes are accessed by a 3 mile hike, with an elevation gain of 1500 feet.
This summer this group, a motley crew from the Food Pantry, have decided to hike to a different mountain lake each Friday. So far we have made seven such hikes. Have seen lots and got to use a few muscles that otherwise stay dormant.
