Wed, 7Aug - The Cave of Bones and Deadman Lake

A continuation of hiking the ID/MT Divide ridgeline sometimes in forested areas and more times high up on open rolling hills and meadows, usually just cross-country with no trail but all very nice.  

The big feature today was the Cave of Bones.  A vertical hole in the limestone cliff that is rumored to trap bison in winter when they fall in through the snow.  It's filled with old bones.  I climbed half way down into it but my itouch doesn't have a flash so the pictures are not great.

Deadman lake in the afternoon was very inviting and I took a long break here.  At Tendoy creek I found Sycamore camping and joined him.  Surprised to find we hiked 32 miles today.
