Otokomi Lake, St. Mary, July 12, 2014
Over 50 wildflowers were spotted by the gals, and in the openings, they were spectacular, from silky phacelia to bear grass and twisted stalk. Another beauty was Rose Creek, which you follow all the way to the lake with glimpses of wonderful waterfalls.
At the lake, the gals got to see the trout spawning and fishermen catching them as the did. The gals also started a new tradition to cool themselves: soaking their shirts in the cold water of a lake or stream.
We saw some bear scat, but no animals other than little critters and fish.
At the end of the day, we had a meal at Two Dog Flats restaurant under the new Xanterra ownership. The two who ordered pasta primavera said it was really, good but the others said their meals were just okay. Of course, we drank several gallons of water to re-hydrate from the long, hot hike.
