    We did get to go up into the lookout tower. The lookout is staffed by volunteers and most of them are friendly and want to interact with guests.

    That was great but I think you skimped on the fire wood...

    I only brought a little wood from home to run our stock pot stove and Kelly Kettle and a little extra for potatoes and steaks one night. It was a good thing the Larch log was in camp for me to wedge apart as after 4 nights of multiple camp sites borrowing wood we used all we had.

    And yes, it was a fantastic campout. It was hard to leave the woods and drive back into the rat race of peak tourist season.

    Actually the worst huckleberries we have experienced at Murray Bay in many years of camping there. I am not sure if it is because so many people have been picking or the season was so dry to start. I am thinking over picked because when we were on Elk Island huckleberries were excellent in a small zone and as I started walking towards the camping sites the berries disappeared.

    All I know right now is the mountains are full of green berries...

    Looks like a great time out! The scenery out there looks gorgeous. That is one heck of a pile of firewood, too.

    I doubt that I would ever get tired of looking at that scenery.
    Thanks for the pictures.

    The Hungry Horse reservoir is one of the more picturesque places I have visited. Thank you for sharing your experience and trip!
