We had a great day with four of us going to Rockwell, Aster Falls and Paradise Point while four went to all of the above plus Cobalt Lake. We left Great Falls at 5:30 and got on trail at just after 9 a.m.
The flowers were amazing, especially bear grass right near Rockwell Falls. One group saw a grizzly at Paradise Point.
The Rockwell Falls gals finished around 3 p.m. while the Cobalt Lake gals finished at 4:45 p.m. Susan proclaimed that we had hiked at a "Katie pace," since we hustled so we didn't finish too far behind the other group.
We ate at Serrano's, which is under new management. They were out of a few things. We also learned something: if no one at the table orders a meal and instead all order a la carte, then the table doesn't get chips and salsa.
We arrived home around 8:30 pm. Who went: Susan, Judy, Amber, Katie (Cobalt); Sue, Karen, Gail (Rockwell)
