Russell Lake in the Beartooth Mountains

 Here is the trail beside Russell Lake.  We were delighted with the calm clear weather that turned the lake into a reflective mirror.  We paused here for a snack, a brief rest, and to bask in the view.  No bugs in late August. 

This lake is 6 miles from the trailhead and we would have camped here if only we had gotten on the trail a bit sooner the day before.  There are several nice campsites and we saw lots of fish jumping, but we didn't fish at all.
