Iris Lake, Hiking Out!

Well, the time always has to come... as bad as you want to remain here, you have to go back to civilization. Dang!

1st Lieutenant Lake on the way out. A strikingly beautiful lake!

More flora, no fauna!

A particularly pretty part of the trail. Obviously there is water available here somewhere

More trudging...

A butterfly doing whatever butterflies do with the flowers!

A beaver's 'hogan' on Josephus Lake!

Lower Josephus Lake. In some ways, prettier than the real deal.
