Bond Lake! (Keith Hammer photos)
Thirteen Swan Rangers hiked to Bond Lake on a sunny Saturday, September 16, 2017!
Fall was in the air and a bit of snow in the high country!

Straighten up and hike right!
The Forest Service maintains a fine foot bridge across Bond Creek!
Don't miss Bond Falls along the way, just below the trail!
A first peek of snow atop the Swan Crest!

Mountain ash celebrates with the arrival of fall colors!
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!
