Welcome to Shannon Lake.
This little lake is tucked up in the low mountains above Old US Hwy 2
and the Kootenai River.
You have to hike in.
It is a short, steep hike.
Slippery too, on this day.
Jim skating from north to south.
The sun was trying to burn through.
It didn't quite make while we were here.
A veiw of the Kootenai on the hike out.
If you squint and use your imagination, you can visualize
the town of Troy in the above foto.
Here is the steepest part of one of the routes in.
This is the trail.....really!
We skated here in late November or early December
I cannot remember which.
I tried to post on the blog then but it wouldn't let me.
I just found these again and love them....
So better late than never!
