Lost Creek Lake - Viewpoint Mike 1-22-18

Photos by Bob and Steve

A convoy of 14 hikers headed out through a thick fog for the trailhead. The weather cleared a bit for our arrival and later the sun came out. A great day for hiking. Some places were slippery where you had to navigate between switchbacks. Yours truly took a tumble when I slipped on a bridge that was like walking on ice. Best to be very careful when a bridge slopes down a bit away from you. 

Having achieved the climb to Viewpoint Mike we took Dan's advice and continued on through the woods a half mile to the borrow pit which provided much of the rock for the William L. Jess Dam which created Lost Creek Lake. There were beautiful views in the sun and it had warmed up so we stopped there for lunch. 

After the hike we took a vote (8 to 4 with some abstaining) and passed up Phil's Frosty for beer at Wild Wings. Server Heather took the usual good care of us and fun was had. I noted that wine was served with a generous pour. My Stella Artois was even more generous.
