Cool, cool water

The daily temperatures here are heading up into the 100’s for the next few days, and I know it’s hot also in a lot of other places now, especially in the western states of the U.S. Seems a good time to post some “cool” photos that were taken on the first of June this year of Revett Lake on the Montana/Idaho border. (Hard to believe, only a month ago.)

Revett Lake

Revett Lake is a small mountain lake that sits at an elevation of 5800 feet in the Bitterroot Mountain range just west of the Montana/Idaho border in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest. From Thompson Pass, which is about 20 miles west of Thompson Falls Montana on highway 471, you can take Forest Service road 266 to its end at the trail head for the lake (about a mile and a half). From there, USFS trail 9 will lead to the lake, a mile and a half to two mile hike with a fairly easy climb in summer; not so easy in June.

At the outlet of Revett Lake

The outlet from this little high country lake on the Idaho/Montana border is located at its northeast end and creates the beginning of Cascade Creek. (Photo taken June 1, 2013)
