Nine mile round trip hike…

…to picnic at Snyder Lake in Glacier on this miniature rock island was definitely well worth our Saturday.  Cyrus accidentally kicked our picnic trash into the water while trying to swat off mozzies, so he had to go wading in the cooold water to catch it and keep from littering.  Minus the aggressive mozzies, it was a perfect day!

Then post hike dinner after our aperitif of Sweet Peaks ice cream, yes again.  Unfortunately there are “Sweet Peaks” (oh, pun intended) all over this area. It’s all so irresistibly delicious!
