We drove through two nearby campgrounds to check them out. We stopped at Libby Flats observation point where you had a good view of the snowy range mountains. We went on a short hike on the miner’s cabin trail. Then we hiked the 3.6 mile Lakes Trail. It went through some beautiful country – snowy mountains and lakes with beautiful flowers in bloom. I carried a picnic lunch in my backpack for to eat at the end of the trail as we enjoyed the scenery. Just as we got there it started to rain – much lightning which was frightening on the treeless 11,000 foot summit. We high tailed it back wearing our Wal-Mart ponchos and had the picnic lunch in the car. It rained the rest of the day.
