Thunder & Lightning Lakes
Sawtooth National Recreation Area, August 2, 2008

A hike to Thunder and Lightning Lakes was part of our 2008 outings schedule. The first adventure was driving the primitive mining road to reach the unmarked trailhead. We walked past an old cabin where miner Elmer Enderlin once lived. Next we took a backdoor route to Thunder Lake, then scampered up through talus in time for lunch at Lightning Lake. Alpine flowers were splendid, All in all a great day in the fabulous White Cloud Mountains.
