Pine Creek Lake hike, Livingston, MT pt. 1

Howdee all,

This past Saturday we hiked Pine Creek Lake. Jeff and I and Sickstas family did this hike a few years back on July.  I remembered it as being a difficult hike.

There are three lakes on this hike.

Charlene and I didn't make it to the last two lakes  the last time we were here..Jeff and Tom went without us while we played with the kids in the snow.

This time around I was determined to make it to the top.

Jennifer, joins us for the hike.

She and husband Jimmy will travel with us for the next two weeks, in their motorhome. Jennifer is a hiker and will join us on our hikes, Jimmy loves to fish and Jeff will split his time between hiking and fishing.

  5. I loved looking for the waterfall then seeing it up close. It was like being on the hike with you, only you don't have to listen to me wine about being a flatlander.
    He-he :-}

  7. Lovely photos that give a good idea of what that hike was like. Bet you feel good about yourself. I always feel good after a hike, even if I get sore.

  8. And to think that when I first saw your blog I thought it would be hard to get any exercise, living in a motor home!

  9. I much prefer hikes that are mostly uphill to the destination. Makes the trip back so much more enjoyable. I hate to hike back up only to reach the car. Great shots. Can't wait for the next installment.
