Cascade

This is the stream that flows out of Revett Lake, in the Pan handle National Forest in northern Idaho next to the Montana border.

  1. I think I’d be okay just letting my socks get wet while standing in that water on a hot day.

  3. Melt water, I’d guess. Probably very cold too!

    • There is a lot of melt water flowing down, expanding the stream that comes from the lake, sourced from underground springs. Ice cold!

    • Yes, very lush. It’s not hard to get hikers to stay on the trails.

    • It is. I love seeing scenes like this, showing a very healthy water shed, clear, cold water and lush forest. It’s good to know that there are still places like that.

  6. Is my vision going, or is that snow still hanging around at the bottom left? It reminded me that those streams aren’t flowing just because of rain. “Snowmelt” is a concept that doesn’t come to mind immediately down here!

    • Yes, that is a pretty deep snow bank, and there are many more up above. I was headed to Revett Lake but turned around here because I knew that when there is heavy snow at this point, the rest of the trail would be covered. I’ll try again in a couple weeks. There are deep snow banks remaining on the north slopes of the higher mountains and in the area of deep shade. This was only a little above 5,000 feet.

    • It is indeed beautiful here, especially for anyone who can get out into the mountains on the trails. There are still many areas that are untouched by development or exploitation.

  8. Gorgeous. I was just looking up the highest mountain in Montana and it said Granite Peak at 12,808 feet. Arizona’s highest in Humphreys Peak at 12,633 (which is in my latest blog post) so I guess we do have comparable mountains…

    • I remember the San Francisco Peaks. I skied there a few times. They are gorgeous!
