Ideal Hiking

 The days of Daughter's visit have flowed by: sunny, warm and lovely.  Both inveterate walkers, we have been hiking every day here on the Island, in the Tongass Rainforest.  Yesterday we walked the Three Lakes trail to Ideal Cove.
Flossy was our guide, of course.

Hill Lake, where the trail splits off to the salt water of Frederick Sound

The water lilies are particularly bright in the sunshine.

The trail is in great shape, boardwalk all the way.

Arriving at the beach, we stopped for a minute to rest, and sniff around.
Spot the Sheltie!

Horn Cliffs on the right, looking Northwest up Frederick Sound.

LeConte Bay - those white things at the base of the island are icebergs from the glacier up there.
Too soon, time to head back home.

The wildflowers love the sunny summer days as much as we do.

Forget-me-not - the State flower; Yes, days to remember forever!


  1. That is all, entirely beyond gorgeous, Susan, with such breathtaking mountain views ~ a glorious place! Lucky that you have such fine footpaths ... are they maintained by the park service? volunteers? Such a fine way to spend time with daughter & fluffy one.

  2. Wonderful place for a hike... and lovely to have your daughter with you :)
    (I did spot the Sheltie, too)
