Default Lightning Lakes/ Strike Camp May 27

Took my daughter up to hike the Lightning Lakes chain to Strike Lake Camp today as I figured the snow should be pretty much gone by now. I'm happy to say that it is except for a few rogue patches here and there. The camp itself is for the mostpart free and clear of snow except for patches in the trees.
The trail is in good shape except for several blowdowns crossing the path here and there. Nothing too serious though.
Some photos:
Anybody have any dam safety concerns?

Some of the blowdown along the way

Time to get her some hiking poles

Strike Lake

Snack Time at the camp!

For my American friends on Memorial day:

Lol No name yet Kelly. She can come up with her own when she's old enough.

Woohoo, hoping to do this one with the kiddo too. For some reason I've never actually done that hike.
