Crossing Groom Creek. (Keith Hammer photos)
Fifteen Swan Rangers hiked to Hall Lake on a slightly hazy but none too lazy Saturday, September 8, 2018!
Some nice breezes helped clear the air!

Hall Lake and the Swan Crest!
Mountain ash berries . . .

A "bear rub" tree set up to trick a bear into giving up its DNA before being read its Miranda rights!
The Swan Rangers meet every Saturday at the Echo Lake Cafe for breakfast at 7:30, leaving at 8:30 for a partial day outing in the northern Swan Mountains and foothills.
They carpool from the Swan River School parking lot next to the Cafe.
When hiking in bear country, remember to carry bear spray and avoid the 3-D's: dawn, dusk, and darkness.
Everyone is welcome!
