The Rangers come to a fork in the trail! (Pat Jaquith photos)
Six Swan Rangers hiked a loop in Jewel Basin on a clear Saturday, August 26, 2017!
They went up through Picnic Notch, along Alpine Trail #7 above Jewel Lakes, then back around via Noisy Notch!

Baneberry; the white version, rather than red.
Mountain sorrel with seedpods ready to unwind!
Anenmone; a.k.a. mouse on a stick!
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!
