Thompson Lake sits at about 8,000 feet. A day off at 8,000 feet is a great idea. And to explore the surroundings. Some elements to note were White Bark Pine and Mountain Goats on the side of Gallatin Peak. And then there is an after dinner hike up 1,000 feet to some lakes with the name Chilled. Obviously, since they are still frozen in the middle of summer. Right? A breath of fresh air. All our life elements were left behind. Jobs and society. Forgotten in the cool mountain air. After a nap a bark-surf back to camp on a snow field. We need to make this our life. Simple.
