Jewel Basin

 Needing to make the most of the short Montana summers, I found myself out of work earlier than usual on a Saturday and headed for the mountains. My initial plan was a short 5 mile loop that overlooked a lake in the Jewel Basin just north east of Flathead Lake. However, due the the amount of snow we were experiencing along our route, we set our sights for a peak along the ridge line we were supposed to be following and changed course.

After a short but steep hike to the top of the unknown peak, we threw off our packs and played in the snow.

There aren’t many places you can build snowmen in June. Or do snow angels. So of course both had to be done.
