The Hike Back Down…

 

The sun sinking down and throwing some great light on the surrounding mountains while we hike down on Logan Pass with our big brood…

Our hike was cut a little short when we saw this big guy coming down the mountain…

A Little Bit Fallish…

 

The temperatures have dropped and we have had a few killing freezes already in northwest Montana.  A few flowers are still doing well though….

Most of the leaves here are still green but some of the shrubs are starting to change….

A quick, cold dip…

This evening we decided we would go for a quick dip, when at 7 pm it was still 90 degrees outside.

Trying to warm up…

IMG_7474 The consensus was that Lake McDonald was very cold!  All that freshly melted mountain snow made hands and feet tingle and turn white.  Brrrr…  The little kids didn’t play too long in the water but had fun finding and skipping rocks.  The big kids surprised me at how long they swam, double brrrr….

A couple of evening pictures, not much color but a beautiful place to cool off and get away from the mosquitoes.
