Melakwa Lake - 9 miles

Thunderstorms last Monday kept us out of the mountains, but not so yesterday. It did, however, remain overcast and even cold at times.

Zuzu didn't have a problem with it. Of course, she wears fur and makes no apologies for it.


I-90. It doesn't exactly promote the getting-away-from-it-all feeling, but imagining the work that went into building this in that environment was kind of cool. Imagining having driven that stretch of road and never realizing how high up it is was less cool.

Preparing to cross Denny Creek.

Keekwulee Falls.

We had no idea this would be quite so spectacular.

Gaining some of the 2300'. The sun's absence was welcome here!

Snowshoe Falls.

 My head was covered with spiderwebs. Fortunately, NOT spiders!

Melakwa Lake 4600'. Lunchtime!

Also time to bundle up. It was c-c-cold. 

Merry Christmas!
