We stopped along the trail and eat our lunches while admiring this incredible view! Food does seem to taste better out in the wilderness.
That's Idaho on the other side of this mountain.
As we were enjoying our lunch we were entertained by several Hawks and smaller birds that seemed to be curious as to why we were there. And of course the view held our attention too.
The temperature did warm up quite a bit further into our hike and crossing the small streams became something we looked forward too...as did Allie, K.s hiking companion that always hikes with us and leads the way up (or down) on all of our hikes.
I am grateful that K. brings Allie with her on our adventures as it makes me feel a bit more safe out in these animal filled woods. On this trip we did encounter a black bear but he wasn't interested in being anywhere near us. WHEW!!
Another wonderful hike to add to my list of beautiful places visited in Montana.
