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!
