Default Lightning Lakes - July 15-17, 2011

Really wanted to try for Frosty Mountain in Manning...but my gf was none too excited about camping in any snow. So we decided to head down the easy Lightning Lakes trail and stay Sat night at Strike Lake camp.

A nice set of lakes and a decent little hike...I was somewhat bummed about not being able to get up higher and have a more challenging hike but in the end I was just happy to be outside for the weekend and not in the office.

There was a fair amount of bear sign but the most aggressive animal we saw was the young buck - from where we took the pictures he was slowly advancing on us through the creek. After a couple of photos and before he was across we headed off back down the trail.

Strike camp was fairly busy and we got a fair amount of rain Sat afternoon. Thankfully I packed my MEC scout tarp after checking the forcast before heading out Friday.

Soaking your gaitors in bear spray is a goto for that hike. The deer will chase a burrito if it comes to close. I'm going there later this week.
