Description of Hike:
This was our second annual father/daughter hike. This year we decided to go to Red Lake. It was a little early in the season to do this trip, since it was still rather cool, and the weather wasn’t all that great. We camped at Red Lake, hiked up farther to Wall, Sheep and some other lakes, and also took the trail up to Potato Butte. The view from the top of Potato Butte was pretty cool, although we missed seeing the potato shaped rocks that gave the butte its name. Due to the coolness of the weather and the fact that it was going to rain on Saturday night, we decided to hike out on Saturday afternoon and come back home. It was still a good trip, and we had fun.
