Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by George

Outside the Motor Inn at Lake McDonald Lodge -- let the fun begin!

By the time we took our first break, we were already above the clouds

Chester and Carissa looking at Mount Brown (don't worry, we're not climbing that)

Carissa in the mist

4300 feet later, we reached the lookout. Whew!

The view of Mount Brown from the lookout

Dangling feet over the edge of the lookout balcony

Enjoying the view (it was chilly up there)

Looking back at Lake McDonald reminded me of Tahoe

Now comes the painful part -- heading back down

We were higher than the helicopter flying the tourists around the valley!
