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!
