After getting the pic for the geocache, I went back to the Bear Lake Ranger station for a Ranger Walk. The park schedules several walks and hikes per week where you can have a ranger go with you. I think this is a great idea, but it was just me and two rangers!! I think they use volunteers for most of this stuff, but they also have to be very knowledgeable. It was an easy walk, about a mile and an hour. Here is a pic of Bear Lake from Google Earth, and it shows where I walked for part of a couple of days. The season is all wrong from when I walked, but it's still neat, isn't it??!! By the way, that parking lot was usually FULL by 9:30 a.m.! It was full today, too, so I had to ride a bus to Bear Lake and back to my car. The rest of the week, it was about as empty at 5:00 a.m. as it is here!
